Christmas Teddy.

 
It's time again for another card over at the Christmas Card Club.
The theme has been set by Sue P. who is asking for a
Christmas Teddy.
Now I didn't have a stamp or a digi that I could use so I resorted
to delving through my stash of recycled cards and found these cute bears.
 
I trimmed the card down and made layers up using navy pearlescent card
then onto a design paper by Alison Butler.
I used a silver card blank for the base.
Sentiment created  and printed from word on my computer.
Pearls and ribbon from my stash.


Finally I used up all the odds of paper and card for the inside.
Even the sentiment was one  I had made  too large for the  front of the card!
Hope this passes muster.
 
Entering into the following challenges:
Pixie's Crafty Workshop #133. I used up loads of snippets for this card.
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra #  Anything  goes Christmas.
Me and Mine # Beat the Rush.
The Glory of Christmas #37 Anything goes.
Crafty Boots# Christmas in July.
Simply Create Too #65 Christmas in July

  7. Looks wonderful. I too had to use a recycled image. Always feels good to rescue a sweet image and give it a new life.

    The papers you chose are so pretty. The stars are perfect with this sweet teddy. I see you are finishing up your inside of card so pretty too. Mine resolve to do that fell by the wayside when I started my 50 card stash challenge.

    I really need to sit for a few evenings and finish up the insides...you are inspiring me!

  32. What a darling card Mrs A! Cute and great use of snippets too.

    Trying to resist committing murder here - local village idiot alongside us to the right and up a bank didn't put his handbrake on car properly and guess where it ended up? Grrrrrrrrr. Hence late hopping round due to all the gubbins of sorting out - and popping Valium!!

    Hugs, Di xx
