Teddy Bea's Easter

Is it a Bunny or is it a Bear? it's Teddy Bea!!!! LOL To get into the spirit of Easter Teddy Bea is dressed as the Easter Bunny and she has a basket of very yummy looking eggs!!!  I have gone a bit overboard with the embellies on this one I'm afraid - I think I've tried to cram everything Easter into one card and I don't think I've quite got the balance right! but hey ho - I really enjoyed making it!! :-)

The star of the show is "Easter Bunny Bea" and you can find her at Teddy Bo & Co. Isn't she adorable? I really loved colouring this image. To make her more cuddly - I've added some white flock to her bunny nose, tummy and pom poms!!

The delish papers and toppers were Birthday pressies - I think these were all from Let's Make Cards magazine kit. The borders around the edge of top of card are Anita's Glitterations and they are like glitter gel and all squishy! 

The feather, bunny, bow, pearls and charm were all gifts either for Christmas or my Birthday. The little pink buttons are Papermania Capsule Collection. The tiny green flowers at the top are from MeiFlower.

The card blank was a Stepper Card by Papermania. It was a bit hard to photograph as it looks different at all angles - hence all the photos!!! The Daffodils, Carnations, Roses, Rosebuds, Lace and Pins are all from Wild Orchid Crafts.

You have to look carefully but on the lace there are 2 Little pink buttons and a lemon bow!

I've coloured Bea with Promarkers and Flexmarkers
Bea: Caramel, Cocoa
Bea's Hat: Cool Aqua, Aqua?
Bunny Suit: Rose Pink, Blossom, Shocking Pink, Sorbet
Carrot: Apricot, Honeycomb, (leaf) Meadow Green, Apple
White Wow Flock on bunny suit trimmings

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:-

Teddy Bo Challenge - Challenge 28 - 'Easter and/or Buttons and Bows' ends 1st April 2012
Wild Orchid Crafts - Challenge 45 - 'Bingo' ends 01 April 2012
(buttons, flowers, charms)
Top Tip Tuesday - Challenge 73  - 'Easter and/or Animals' ends 09th April 2012

Off to bed now... I'm really tired.... and I'm still recovering from the shock of yesterday. The prices have gone up at our dentist!!!! £35 to look at my teeth, another £35 to clean my teeth (can he not look at my teeth whist he is cleaning them!!!! LOL) and £45 for a filling next month!! Oh well I shouldn't grumble - it has cost me more in the past!! and everything, everywhere is going up in price - I even got a shock when I went in Red Cross Charity Shop - the cheapest T Shirt was £2.99 - I only wanted one to tear up into rags!! LOL

Hope the sunshine stays for the weekend!
Take Care!
Big Hugs

This is a gorgeous Easter card Sue, fab image and such pretty papers. I think I must really be loosing my marbles, I thought I had commented on this one but when I checked I found I hadn't.
I know what you mean about the dentist, what always annoys me is having to pay for PAIN!
