By The Cute and Girly- Red and 1

Thanks for all the birthday wishes yeserday for Liam, he had a great day :)
He just wanted money for his Birthday this year, so we went in own shopping and he bought himself a new pair of trainers and a pile of new clothes, so he's a happy boy, but we both have sore legs today after all the walking we did yesterday. Honestly he is worse than a woman when he is shopping for himself. If it's for anyone else, he hates shopping, but if  it's shopping for himself, he drags you into every shop! lol. We had fun though which is the main thing :)

As I said yesterday, I still have a card to show that I done for the By The Cute and Girly challenge which is a colour combo of red and 1 other colour of your choice.
I posted the other card and the wooden heart I made at the start of the month, but thought I would leave this card till the end of the month as a little reminder that there is still a few days to go to get your entries in.
The new challenge starts on the 1st of March, so get those entries in now if you haven't done so already, and remember you can enter with any craft and as much times as you like as long as you enter with a different craft each time.

 The cute teddy bear image I have used is a digi  from Stamp Fairy who is also one of our sponsors for February over at BTC&G, and I coloured it with Promarkers and also added some glossy accents to the middle of the flower.
The paper I am not sure where it came from, but I think it might of actually been a freebie in a magazine a while ago, it's nice thinck paper though, not that thin stuf that you can see right through lol.
The brown is coredinations and I distressed the edges with my scissors again.... I really must get one of those distressing tools,
The flowers were punched using the SU! 5 petal flower punch and a pearl added in the middle.
The ribbons are from my stash and the red one started it's life as white ribbon but I used a Promarker to colour it to match my image, although it looks a totally different colour here, but irl it's the same colour as the teddys flower.
Oh and I handstitched around the patterned paper with some embroidery thread.

This pic is a bit blured, but isn't this bear sweet? Stamp Fairy has so many cute bears and other little characters. If you haven't had a look at their images before, you really should have a peek. I know I will be buying some :)

That's it from me today, I will be back tomorrow with my card for Charisma Cardz.

Thanks for stopping by
