Duck Egg Blue & Chocolate Challenge

Hi girls (and fellow crafters)
Welcome back.

My new card is for The Teddy Bo Challenge 'Duck Egg Blue and Chocolate' (mmmmmmm chocolate), I enjoyed eating a whole bar of Cadbury's Fruit and Nut while I made this one.

I started with a background paper using the Blue and Chocolate colour scheme and then I cut some letters and a heart out of the same paper which I then mounted onto chocolate brown paper.  I coloured the Teddy Bo image with Promarkers; Denim Blue (the nearest I could find to Duck Egg), Umber, Cinnamon and a touch of Pear Green on the stem of the rose.

I then cut around the image and mounted it with foam pads onto the DP and then added some blue ribbon. I then mounted the letters and the heart with foam pads too and added them over the ribbon. Hope you all like it?

Thanks for stopping by,
Hugs, Fae xxx
