Another teddy bear card

Here's today's offering for you - using my favourite subject (teddy bears) and my current favourite stamps (Popcorn the bear).  Yes, I know that I've already got a few Popcorn cards on my blog but I still love him.

I am going to enter this card into two challenges that I've found whilst blog hopping.
Just Cute Bears Challenge blog - Challenge #1 One for the Girls - a great new challenge blog where you must include a teddy on your creation

Die Cut Dreams Challenge Blog - Challenge #32 Bears - that one speaks for itself.

TOP TIP! ....I tried to match the die cut flower with the design, so to add shading to the edges I dabbed round it with a pale pink ink pad (which I also used on the main design) and to add texture to the centre I used a large dollop of Hi Tack PVA and gently sprinkled it with Flower Soft.  I then sprinkled that with an ultra fine lilac glitter which sticks in the little spaces that the flower soft doesn't.

Here's what I've used for my card:
Image - Popcorn Bear by Crafters Companion - coloured with pro markers
Card and papers - DCWV
Jewels and flower soft - from stash

Thanks for looking!
