StampFairy Challenge #5

Good morning, I hope that you all had a great weekend. Over on the StampFairy Challenge blog we have another great challenge for you.  This week the theme is layers and buttons.

For my card this week, I chose to work with one of the adorable chubby angel bears which can be found in the store. These little cuties are just perfect for a new baby card. 

One of the things that I love about making cards is that it uses up my leftover scraps and this card is no exception. Only the cardstock used for the base is new. Everything else with the exception of the image was a leftover from a scrapbook page that I made for a friend a few years back. I have coloured this sweet little bear in tones of yellow and blue to go with what remained of the moon and star paper (it is like this image was designed for this paper).

As you can see, there are lots of layers to this card. I have used some beads from my stash to spell out the word BABY and if you look closely you will see that my bow has been embellished with a button.

I hope that you will have some time to come out and play this week, I am really looking forward to seeing what you create and Gerda is offering up some of her great images as prizes.  Be sure to pop over to the StampFairy Challenge blog to see the rest of the gorgeous DT inspiration.

I will be entering this card into the following challenges:
