A Beary special card

Morning all! Well I had a lovely day yesterday - I found out that the scarecrow that my girls made at Rainbows won a prize in the Wray scarecrow festival - so I'm very excited to tell them all about it this evening! And then I opened up the new CMPC magazine and there was a lovely letter in there about me from my mum - and a crazy picture of me and my cuttlebug in an article about what crafting item you couldn't live without. And then - I tuned into blogland and found I've won a couple of saturated canary digis from a passion for promarkers! So all in all it was a very lucky day!

Today's been good too - but onto my post for now!

I've coloured my teddy bea image in with promarkers but kept her fairly plain beacause I wanted her to gowith a white on white card. I've added glitter to her wings, wand and hat bobble. I've followed a sketch from the sketch and stash challenge ( my neglected stash is my DB designs flower). The embossing folder I used was a cuttlebug one and the punch I've used is martha stewart.
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
 ready-teddy-gochallenge Bingo: Buttons, Glitter, embossing
