Teddy Bo Tuesday

Can you believe that it is almost the end of February, except that it's a leap year, today would have been it, February over and done with. It only seems like five minutes ago since we were celebrating Christmas and in another five minutes it will be Easter LOL!

Today we are half way through the latest Teddy Bo Challenge, Swirls and Pearls, which is being hosted by Team B, (I'm on Team A), so although I have a card to show you using one of this week's new releases, it doesn't actually follow the challenge, as there is not a pearl or a swirl to be seen LOL!

I decided to make a pop-out stepper card, as I think the last one of these I made was Christmas 2010, although this time around I thought I would have a go at making the pop-out section a circle, instead of the usual square/rectangle. I think it turned out OK.

Image - TBB_111 - coloured in Photoshop
Papers - Clipart Fairy - A big hug
Die cut heart - Joy Craft - 6003/0005
Butterflies - X-cut punch
Border - Martha Stewart - half daisy border punch.
Inked around edges in Colorbox fluid chalk ink pad - creamy brown.
Metallic cord, charms, gem and fabby gingham buttons - MeiFlower

I've put a small gusset inside the card to stop it from splaying, so have attached the message panel to the back. I added a pink gem to the middle of the flower charm, and gorgeous gingham buttons to the die cut hearts. A little "handmade with love" heart charm attached to the label is the perfect finishing touch.

I am going to enter this card into the following challenges

Make it Monday - always Anything Goes
