Forever Friends Guest Designer

A couple of weeks ago my Teddy Bea ice skating Teepee card was chosen as the Forever Friends Favourite, which means I had the opportunity to be a guest designer.
This weeks challenge is being sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads, and I was given the ever so cute Baptism bows digi stamp to work with. The theme for the challenge is a round card and it must contain an animal/bear.

Here's the card I made using the image.

I coloured the digi in Photoshop, printed in out a few times and layered it up to give a slight raised effect. The spotty paper is from the Nitwits - Hey Cupcake kit. I used Go kreate scalloped circle dies to make the frame and then embossed it with the Crafts Too - dots folder. I rubbed a pink ink pad around the edges of the frame. I ruffled (drew a circle of tacky glue then just pushed and scrunched the ribbon onto it) some vintage seam binding from the Ribbon girl around the image before adding the frame. I glamour dusted the edges of the card and added a flat back pearl to each scallop. The little butterfly embellishment came from my friend Donna. I punched two holes in the side of the card and threaded some pink seam binding and chiffon ribbon through and tied in a bow.

Pop over to the Forever Friends challenge blog and see what fabulous creations the Design Team came up with.

Back tomorrow with Teddy Bo.
