Boyds Bears Tea Party

Hello Everyone~

Wow I amazed myself by combining 3 challenges in one. Whew!!! The fun challenges include Priscilla's MMSC #17 sketch, Basic Grey Color challenge of brown, pink, yellow along with 1 item from basic grey (which I was too late to enter but oh well), and Paper Maniac's embossing challenge.

The stamp I used is very old, sitting around since kids were little. It is Boyds Bear & Friends (Emma and Bailey) having tea :) I used SU brown paper and BG Urban Prairie collection.

Emma and Bailey were colored with my copics (thanks Kim for little lesson the other night) and I added bling to the roses with taffy smooch. The rose accents I sparkled up with stickles and finished with added touch of dew drops.
I embossed each BG layer with different folder design.
Stamps: Boyd Bears & Friends (Emma & Bailey)
Momento Tuxedo Black, Copics & Taffy Smooch
SU and BG Urban Prairie Collection

: Cuttlebug embossing folders and Spellbinders Octagon Nesties
Ribbon, lace, dew drops, and roses highlights with stickles

Thanks for stopping by.

I can't tell you how thrilled I was to open up your blog and see this amazing Boyds Bear Card. After all, I am a Boyds Bear Collector and have the tapestry image of this on my family room wall. Your coloring is fantastic and the dp you choose compliments the design so well. Thanks for playing the MMSC challenge this week. Hope to see more of your creations again soon.
