Sweet Sunday Teddy

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC108.

I made a card for a friend using one of my fave sets from Taylored Expressions, Beary Special. The images of different stuffed animals in this set are so adorable, and this teddy was calling out to me.

He's stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Buttercream and coloured with copics. Parts of him are paper pieced with a pattern from October Afternoon Farm Fresh. The rest of the patterned papers are from October Afternoon Campfire. I cut out teddy and popped him on foam tape onto a square of kraft cardstock. This seems to be my new thing...I love cutting out images lately! Oh, and because I've used kraft, I can play along with my bud Jeanie's That's Krafty Challenge #48.

I took some creative liberty with the element in the corner and added a fun polka dot pennant with the Pennant a la carte stamp and the Pennant Border die...LOVE!!! It was just a tad too long for where I wanted it so I snipped off the ends and added my own twine bows. A few Twinkles, some glitter candy dots and plenty of sewing finished off the details.

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around and see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Stampers came up with!

Super, super cute Karen. Have I ever seen such even cutting on an image??? I don't think so. How do you do that!!? I also really like the wavy stitching around the outside edge of the card.

Not to mention your perfect cutting out of the bear and how on earth do you zig zag stitch around that circle???
