Just Clowning Around

Teddy Bea that is........
Trying for a vintage look but don't think it's my genre anymore then WoW was! At one point I didn't think this card was going to come together at all but I'm glad I persisted as I'm quite pleased with the finished article.
Teddy Bea is coloured with promarkers and highlighted with a Sakura gelly roll pen. Backing paper is a freebie from Bearly Mine and gingham came from a DCWV adhesive stack. Purple card has been grunged with white ink and white card has been grunged with purple . Card is finished with some plaited jewellers line, roses, pearls and a sentiment from my stash.
Challenges entered:

Sketch and Stash - followed sketch and used Teddy Bea for the first time
Cupcake - gingham and roses
Teddy Bo - easel card
Bearly Mine - vintage easel
My Time to Craft - scallops
DYSU - purple

Thanks for stopping by today and if you leave a comment I'll know you've been :)
