Olivia & Her Teddy

Hi folks,
I am gradually getting back into card making and blogging an thought i would share a card i made over 3 days last week with you.
The gorgeous little girl is called Olivia and she is from the Crafters Companion 'Patchwork Polly' range. i coloured her and her teddy in with pro markers. The rose backing paper is from a stack that was a magazine freebie, and i used 2 of the patchwork stamps on a plain green card and a checked blue card and stuck them in opposite corners of the card. To add a bit more texture to the card i used a doily underneath 7 assorted roses in soft blue-green and peachy-pink colours. i also used some peach coloured raffia instead of ribbon. Finally Olivia and ted were mounted onto the card using foam pads.
Even though this took me hours to do, spread over 3 days, i am very pleased with how it turned out and happy i was able to sit and make it, i enjoyed it.
