Just Cute Bears Photo Inspiration Challenge

My 2nd GD card for the Just Cute Bears Challenge ,,,, this week Cathy's 2 girls chose a beautiful peacock image for us get inspiration from ! (Photo below)

For my card I followed last weeks fab sketch on the LOTV Challenge ,, I didn't realise it was now a weekly sketch lol !! :-) I used a new LOTV stamp ,,, soo cute !! I coloured the image with copics and added a little star dust stickles here and there and added glossy accents to the baubles. The backing paper is a handmade paper I bought in Venice and I must admit I was very reluctant to cut into it ,,, but I though it was perfect for the inspiration !! I also used gold stardream card which I embossed with a star folder. The flower and bauble are from a Tim Holtz Prima Limited edition collection ,,, gorgeous these are ! The sentiment is also from a LOTV sentiment set and I used some ric-rac from my drawer.

A close up and a piccy of the beautiful Peacock :-)

Hello Lorraine

What a gorgeous card, with stunning colours, they work so well together. I love your background paper and understand your reluctance to cut into it. Teddy is just perfect and with the addition of stickles makes a gorgeous card.

Thank you so much for joining in our latest challange.

oh no it's the pyscho robin killing bear again - LOL!!
Only kidding Lorraine this bear is way too cute to be anything but adorable. I can't believe the cuteness of the LOTV stamps this year - everyone of them is just gorgeous.
As to the paper from Venice - oh my! cutting into that!!! So BRAVE
Fabulous card though so well worth the cutting.
