Sweet Teddy

The weekend is finally here, and I hope all of you are enjoying it! I have no set plans for the weekend but I sure hope to have some time to catch a good movie and relax. Lately I have been needing cards for newborns and usually have to create them at the very last minute. Luckily this year I had a stash of about 6 cards for newborn boys and girls!! I never have a stash of cards. Looks like this year is the year for the boys, with a couple of girls here and there. =)
With that said, I just made this card for a baby girl.
I just thought this teddy bear was the cutest!! He's cute and yet traditional. I had also made a card for a baby boy but had to give that one out even before I could take a picture of it to show you. Are you wondering where I got him from?? He is from Alota Rubberstamps!! There are also other cute stamps besides this bear for baby.
I really wanted to create a sweet, soft look for this card and had to go with pink and brown. I also kept it pretty clean and simple so the focus would remain on the bear. I had to choose accessories that were not going to be over powering him and went with a bow around the neck and added some light pink half pearls in each of the 4 corners and one on the bow.
Speaking of Alota Rubberstamps, head on over to Paper Craft Planet as the new challenge has started today! All you need to do is create a Father's Day card and upload it there. The winner will receive a wonderful prize from Helene at Alota. =)
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your weekend with me!
