Baby Bear Card

A coworker had a son a couple of months ago. I've been so busy that I never got a card made to put with the gift. Of course, I also kept forgetting to take him the gift, so that worked out okay. I finally sat down last night and this morning and put this card together. This teddy is a digi image from the CDAC progressive 15 challenge. The designer is Mami Doodles. I printed him on white cardstock. Using an embossing folder from Darice and myn new Vagabond (I love this machine) I added the designs around the outside. The coloring was done with glitter chalk-because I love glitter. I stamped the sentiment using ink from Close to My Heart. I stamped off first because the blue was too dark and didn't match. The lighter color looked much better.  I used from my stash the white cardstock and glitter chalk. All in all it is one of my quicker cards. It is going into the following challenges:
