Powder Puff

Sorry for you folks having lots of rain but you probably slept better than we did last night as it was so hot. Seems a bit fresher today and lots of cloud so I think the unseasonal heatwave is over. We're off to the coast today but I wanted to post this card before we go. In fact I was so eager to post it that when I went to add it to the post I found I hadn't uploaded the photo I took yesterday.

It's so easy to use new stamps that sometimes we forget our older ones and I love this sweet bear so thought it was time she was used again. Papers are Prima sweet fairy. I distressed the edges and coloured the image with Promarkers and Flexmarkers. The lace was a RAK from my TG teamie Hazel. I used one of my fave MS border punches and a Nellie die. The flowers are Prima with various buttons and pearls added. I love that little rose button, shame I only found one of those in my stash.
Challenges:
Paperplay White plus one
Papertake Great sketch
Whoopsi Daisy Lace and pearls
Allsorts At least 5 flowers
Sweet Stampin' Lilac and lace
Paper Sundaes Lots of layers
Dream Valley Monochrome
Cutie Pie Bingo (Sentiment, lilac, border punch and flowers, border punch, lace)
Aud Sentiments Happy Birthday

Catch you later this evening.
