Crafty Calendar - Teddies

This is the first of two posts today as I completely forgot to do my card for the Crafty Calendar challenge which is always on the first Saturday of the month, I had the day off yesterday and had a lazy kind of day until about 4.30 when I logged on the computer and discovered that I'd missed the challenge going live! As we were going out I didn't manage to complete the card last night so have just been putting it together this morning - if you look closely enough you will see that the glue is nowhere near dry and the bottom one of my organza roses has actually slid a little down the card while I was taking the photo!!

Anyway it was Caroline's turn to set the challenge this month and as her dad's birthday is coming up and everyone calls him Ted, Caroline would like to see Teddy Bears on your cards. For my DT card I decided to colour up one of my brand new Teddy Bea images - an absolute joy to colour! - with my Promarkers, I used backing paper from Making Memories, lace from my stash, a sentiment from Personal Impressions and organza flowers from Jasmine's Cards. The tiny flowers came from Wild Orchid.
