Beary Special Backpack

I made this card using Karen Giron's Sweet Sunday Sketch #24...what a great layout! Well, I LOVE circles, so it wasn't tough to win me over with this sketch...grin!

This adorable teddy in a backpack image is from Beary Special at Taylored Expressions. I love love LOVE that proceeds from Beary Special and Beary Special Accessories are being donated to Sick Kids hospital in Toronto through the Taylored Expressions Giving Tree. 

I decided to paper piece again and for the teddy I reached for my brown suede paper...it just seems so right for a plush friend. The image was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black first onto yellow Prism paper, then onto the blue Prism, then onto the plaid patterned paper and then onto the brown suede paper and I cut out the respective elements from each image. I also pieced teddy's ears with the plaid paper (which is from My Mind's Eye Just Dreamy 2, the Delightful Line). I used a brown copic (E44) to colour the backpack straps. The image was cut out with circle Nestabilities and I piereced around the edge for some interest. 

The card base is Choice Buttercream, followed by chocolate then the blue layer which I ran through my paisley Cuttlebug folder. I added some blue satin ribbon then dove into my Savannah buttons to find the perfect accents. 

In case you don't already know, Taylored Expressions is in the middle of a move from California to Iowa. The TE Store is open and taking orders, however your order will not be shipped until July 13th (but Taylor's shipping is speedy, so you won't have to wait long for your goodies). 

Thanks for stopping by!
