Bo and Bea - In The Garden

This is an Anniversary Card that I've made for my mum and dad. When I saw this image I thought it was perfect for them as, weather permitting, they both love to sit out together on our garden bench. I keep buying more and more of these Teddy Bo stamps. I really love them and I think I might actually have a crush on Bo !!!!  LOL

My mum and dad love them also which is good! I think Teddy Bo is perfect for male cards. He's not a soppy teddy - he has real character! I don't work for Teddy Bo Co. btw!! LOL just love them!
The papers are from Capsule Papermania Verde Pack. The sentiment was made on computer and mounted on nesties. I've added some pearls and ribbon from stash. The gorgeous flower and leaves are from Wild Orchid Crafts

Teddy Bo and Bea: E31, E33
Bo's Clothes: G82, G85
Bea's Clothes and Flowers: Cornflower Blue and Pastel Blue Promarkers
Grass and Ribbon: G82, G85 and Meadow Green Promarker
Butterfly: Meadow Green and Sakura Glitter Pen Clear Star
Bench: Cinnamon and Tan Promarker
Prismacolour Pencils used for shading

The butterfly looks better in real life honest! It is glittery but looks very odd here! 

The sun is shining again here in Manchester! It is nice to see it after all that dire weather! I am just adjusting now to the heat - so probably it will change again now to cold LOL.
