My Teddy Bear...

Hello! Thanks for visiting:) This week I have found several challenges that ask for including a Teddy Bear, so I finally used my Rex, my Teddy Bear.

I drew Rex as a Teddy Bear some time ago and I have not had the opportunity for him to be in my cards. Unfortunately, as a child I did not have a Teddy Bear, but I treasured everyone of my crayons:)

Returning to the challenges, in this card I used the Mojo Monday Sketch 151. I added a few details to participate in other challenges too:) I printed the image several times for a 3D effect. Rex has green eyes and they look great with crystal finish. In addition to the drawing, I made the flowers and the butterflies. I like to use my embossing folders in my cards. I think they are a great detail to decorate them. I also used my sewing machine, but I did not want to the stitches stand out much, because I used light colors in the background.
