A bear and some butterflies

This is my third post today. Please scroll down for Squiggle Daisy and some candy news.

This cute bear is another of my new LOTV stamps. I know he was released some time ago but he has been on my wish list since he was released and he finally found a home with me. I followed Bev's fab sketch at Lili of the Valley. The papers are from a new pack from Dovecraft, which I spotted amongst some new purchases when I visited Lynsey last week. She kindly gave me one of each so I'm not sure of the name of them, Tea House I think. I used a new Sizzix embossing folder (note to self, use embossing folders more). I think the pink card looks so pretty embossed. Flowers were punched with EK Success punches with added card candy. I have rediscovered this and it seems to be on most of my cards at the moment. The little tag sentiment is also from Craftwork Cards. The image is coloured with Promarkers and I added some spots to the butterflies with a Sakura souffle pen and glossy accents to the bear's glasses.

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges:
Sarah Hurley Embossing
Paper Play Embossing
Teddy Stampers Embossing
Incy Wincy Embossing
Paper Sundaes Embossing
Passion for Promarkers In the Garden
Little Claire Pink and Green

I was so pleased to win top 3 for Little Claire's last challenge.



I'll be back later today or tomorrow with a little candy.
