Best of Luck Teddy

Is this not the cutest little teddy ever?!!  
He is just in style for St. Paddy's Day.

*Awarded Hybrid Chick's Favorite Peep 


I used the new March sketch from Craft's Meow to make my card.

 "St. Paddy's Day Teddy"

The adorable teddy is a freebie from Whimsy & Stars Studio FB page through 8pm (EST) tonight.  A big thank you to Mabelle for the freebie and for continuing to design such adorable images!  I am nabbing all the freebies that I can find to replace all the digi's that I lost when my computer crashed a month ago.  A BIG HINT....Back up, Back up and Back up your files and especially all those digi's.  

 On to the card...All my DP came from the Lemon Flower Matstack by DCWV.  WOW...first time I used any paper out of that stack and I am loving all the designs and colors included.  I colored and fussy cut my teddy.  I even tried a new technique.  After coloring with Copics, I used some colorless blender on a old washcloth and blotted the image to give teddy's fur some texture.  I have seen this done zillions of times, but had never taken the time to try it myself.  Lots of fun on this card...SU felt flowers, loopy border, the curvy edge of the strip that hangs over the card and a little bling on the shamrock. 

Recipe:
Stamps -  St. Paddy's Day Teddy (Whimsy & Stars Studio), Sentiment (? not sure)
Coloring - Copics, wash cloth/colorless blender technique
DP - Lemon Flower Matstack (DCWV), yellow card stock
Misc - felt flowers (SU!), loopy border punch (Martha Stewart), green gemstones 9recollections), square dies, label 4 die (Spellbinders), yellow brads
