late post for SSS

Well I am a Bad girl,
I was supposed to post this last week, but between rowing with Hubby, sulking at Hubby, then getting my own way with Hubby, before dashing off up North to see old girls from school, I am finally getting round to posting this one, sorry Girls,

I also apologise for the poor quality image but the battery re-charger has just died on me, so I am having to rely on my phone, not the best of Ideas!!
This is a lovely image of a young girl holding her teddy bear, and If you think the colours are wrong, and the eyes are different, I'll get mine out the loft!!! Mine has one green eye and one orange eye so there!!!
This Digi is called My Teddy 1, by Sherri Baldy and is available in the SSS shop. Originally I was going to do a little girls birthday card complete with number, but it evolved into something a bit more than a little girls birthday card.
Promarkers, are my pen of choice as many of you will know, so Ivory, Berry red, and Leaf green for the dress, Tan, Terracotta and Honeycomb for the Bear. Berry Red and Crimson for the bow, and Buttercup, Daffodil, and Yellow for the hair. I edged her with April Showers to make her Pop from the back ground.
Next up was actually raiding my box of bits, which sits on the side of my desk. Its full of Pre-embossed pieces, freebies from magazines, etc, and I matted her onto some Lime Green pre-embossed pearlised card. I found a piece of similar shade lime green paper in the box, only small, so I tore it into strips, and stuck it to a piece of red paper, again an oddment, and mounted the image onto it.
Another strip of the pearlised was cut to make a ribbon across the length of the card, and then I used some green ribbon from my stash, a wooden ornament from MCS, and some fired Brick Distress ink, and clear embossing powder, took care of the left hand side of the card.
Hmmn, what to do on the Right? okay, Flourishes! Some die cut flourishes, distressed with Peeled paint, and some small paper rose buds from my stash, some I coloured with Berry Red, some I left white. Finally 3 red gems to finish, and I really like this card!!

So if you like the look of her from my poor phone photo, why not pop to the shop, and get her for yourself, she's a sweetie!!
This is being entered in the Challenge at Passion for Promarkers challenge, Birthday theme

The photos taken on my mobile phone are always pants too :) Great use of snippets and bits from that treasure chest of a box. And I believe your teddy has odd eyes ... did he lose one at one time and have to have eye surgery? Elizabeth x
