Wonderful Wife

Hi fellow crafters

A friend of my husband's, Mark, asked me to make a card for his lovely wife, Patricia, who's birthday is on 17th March. I was going to go with a St Patricks Day 'green' theme but thought as it was a card from a loving husband to his wife, I would make this instead.

I followed this week's 'sketch' challenge from The Teddy Bo Challenge, supplied by the wonderfully talented Kathy. Anyway, without further ado, here's my card.

I used the sketch provided on the Teddy Bo Challenge blog and then printed off Teddy Bea and coloured her with Umber, Cinnamon, Tan, Poppy, Blush and Ivory promarkers.

The DP is from My Minds Eye and the letters were drawn and cut individually by hand onto glittered adhesive sheets. The little scrolly thingies were cut using a Marianne Creatables template and my Big Shot.

Hope you like it?
Hugs xxx
