A Starry Baby card

I just LOVE this cute teddy image from Bundle of Joy. I actually don't own the stamp set, all the images I play with are received from WishRAK. I used my last precious one for this card! I combined challenges today. I used the colors from SCS color challenge and made a star card for Julee's Starry Challenge that celebrates Verve's becoming a SCS Member Company!

I used the stars from Verve's Polka Stars set stamped in guava, banana and choc chip. I pierced either side of teddy's neck and tied a small piece of gold cord (from Pinkhedgehog Papercrafts) to make a bow. I thought the cord was just the thing to "tie" (no pun intended!) the gold brad accents. I colored the sweet teddy with prismacolor pencils, gamsol and blending stumps. There are tiny splashes of itty bitty background stamping in banana and guava on the image panel. The banana panel is run thru the Bug with the Swiss Dots folder. The tags are punched from both sizes of SU oval punches as are the stars.

Have a great Tuesday and don't forget to scroll down and enter for my Basic Grey blog candy on this post!
