Sweet Angel Teddy

Today I have a sweet card to share with you that I made especially for my Baker's Dozen pal Charmaine. She had a baby girl recently and this is my congratulations card for her. I hope she received it before I show it here. I used the Weekend Sketch Challenge #90 hosted by Laurie for the layout.

I knew I wanted to use my Beary Special set from Taylored Expressions (which appears to be out of stock right now) and since Charmaine had a girl I thought it would be perfect to use the angel wings with the bear. I stamped the bear first onto Choice Snow White then masked him and stamped the wings. I stamped the bear again onto papers from the Easter Key Ingredients...LOVE the colours in this Key Ingredients...so I could paper piece the bear. I coloured the wings with a very light pink copic. A little glitter was all this sweet teddy needed on her wings.

For the sentiment I used my stamp-a-majig and combined two sentiments from the set, then I cut it out with my Tags Trio and tucked it under a fabulous flower I received from Jodi (Thank Jodi!). The card base is 5 inches square. The card needed a little more bling so I added a pink rhinestone brad to the flower and five Crystal Twinkles around the image.

Congratulations again Charmaine!

Thanks for stopping by!
