Teddy Bea - Pink and Brown

As I wanted to make a 50th Birthday Card for a friend - I thought I'd combine a few challenges. So I've used this gorgeous Sketch SSS95 for the Sweet Stop Challenge - 'Pick a Sketch' and also I've used the theme of 'Pink and Brown' - Teddy Bo Challenge. And the little buttons in the centre of the flowers fit the Totally Papercrafts - 'All Buttoned Up' Challenge.

The gorgeous papers are First Edition - Sweet Owl. The stripey paper is lovely and glittery. Teddy Bea - Handful of Hearts is from Teddy Bo & Co. I've paper pieced all of the image except for her fur which is coloured with Promarker Vanilla and Prisma Pencils. I've added some Star Dust Stickles to the heart for a little Pizazz!

The little flowers were made with Nellie Snellen Punches using the same paper pad and I've added little Papermania buttons in the centres. Ribbon and little brown flower sequins are from Mei Flower. Sentiment was made on computer.

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

Totally Papercrafts - Challenge 113 - All Buttoned Up ends 26th April 2012
The Sweet Stop  - 'Pick a Sketch' ends 27th April 2012
Teddy Bo Challenge - 'Pink and Brown' ends 29th April 2012

Now I just have to see whether Blogger will behave and schedule this post. He was behaving very badly last week! Thanks for all your lovely comments - they always brighten my day! I will catch up with you all very soon!
Edit: Well it didn't post as scheduled. Found out my Location had changed to USA in Post Settings. I changed it to correct location and it then posted - so if you are having trouble with scheduled posts - then check your location. Now behave Blogger!!! be nice for the rest of the week!!! LOL
Love n Hugs
Sue xx

naughty naughty naughty blogger (*slap-o-the-hand-and-smack-on-the-butt*)!!!!!! How dare you to just change the darn location into USA??? They do not have wonderful castles!!! We want a nice one in the UK or Emerald Island... well the servants can be American, we don't mind LOL, but the location has to be within Europe!
But I'm blabla-ing once again...onto the card, Missus, or you'll bum get smacked too!
It's so lovely, I adore that yummie paper and the sketch is fab too!
Hugs, Alessandra

I think I must have been lucky with blogger (touch wood), I have had a painless switch over, even my scheduled posts were OK.
