Just Cute Bears~ Open Theme

This week at Just Cute Bears we have an 'Open Theme' which basically means
you can decide yourself what you would like to do, don't forget to check out what
the rest of the team have made, oh and the lovely prize on offer made by Annie
Its my Sisters Birthday next week so i decided i would make her Birthday card using one of the LOTV bears, this one is so sweet holding the sunflowers. I had to ask OH "What colour is the middle of a sunflower" lol.... In the end i googled it and there where many different colours

The image has been coloured in with a mixture of Copic and Prisma pencils, lil bit of glamour dust for the flutterflies :) The card stock is from DCWV, paper is from the paper pack. The Fiskars sunburst punch has been used for the border edging, little word punch from SU! for the greeting. The buttons where made from a sizzlets die i have which i had forgotten all about, just need some string really for the thread.

The sketch i followed was from 'Sketch Saturday' thank you for the inspiration girls your cards are lovely, as always. I can also enter this into Teddy Stamper which is 'Summer Bears', first time i have entered this challenge.

I think today is going to be even hotter than yesterday, its very hot already at 8.30am. I only made my card last night, bit of a rush lol.... but i made it phew, hence why i am up so early as needed to take a photo and upload it before 9am. I hope you all have a great day and "Come on England", think we will need a lot of luck to beat the Germans but hey ho strange things are happening in this World cup.

Such a cute card Sonia. I am loving these LOTV stamps. I have to confess I treated myself to a few last week at the Dome's Stamp Magic craft Fair. Thanks for your lovely comment on my card. You have made some fab cards since my last visit. In case you didn't know Elzybells are closing down and they have got a 50% off sale on. I hate to say it but I've spent a small fortune!
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
Hugs, Vicky ~x~
