Teddy With Flower

I bought this stamp from Lily of the Valley years ago and have hardly used it. My renewed love for LOTV made me pull him out again and he's such a cutie to colour. (I stopped using certain stamps as I was using watercolour pencils at the time and couldn't get the hang of them and I hadn't discovered Copics then either, so I gave up trying to colour. It was only when I found Copics and went to a couple of classes at my local craft store that I felt I could colour in images half decently, so all my old stamps came back out!)

Anyway this card is for The Sweet Stop's Sketch Challenge #213 (with a little variation on the sketch!), Just Add Ink's Challenge #167 to just add fabric ( my ruffled edge is some yellow gingham fabric) and for Lili's Little Fairies Challenge to use purple and yellow.

And here's my card.
