Little Girls are the nicest things :)

Happy Hump Day!
Another week is already half way through, this Summer seems to be racing by!
It's hot again but what else should I expect from Texas in July :)
Today's card covers 6 challenges and is a theme that fits with the eBay sellers group I'm in as well. I'm in a group of sellers that all sell handmade paper crafts including scrapbook pages and handmade cards. Each month we have a theme and for July we are doing Gummy Bears on Parade and you can see all the wonderful work from my friends HERE.
The challenges this card covers are:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch 58
Colour Create - Color Challenge, Grassy Green, Apple Green, Sunflower Yellow, Lemon and White.
Flutterby Wednesdays - Fairys, Buttons and Bows
Cute Card Thursday - A stitch in time, real or faux stitching
Paper Play Challenges - Paper Roses, handmade flowers
The Secret Crafter Saturday - 3 ribbons

This little fairy bear comes from Teddy Bears Playtime 2 by Cuddly Buddy, what I love about this set is that you get the black and white line drawings as well as the colored versions so you can color them yourself! I colored her with Copic's and added Diamond Stickles to the star, bow and flower.
The dp is DCVW Nana's Nursery Baby Boy.
The border punch is EK Success and the sentiment is Cloud 9. I made the large flower from a punch, inked the edges and added a button and ribbon.

The inside message mat has the same trim as on the front.
I used faux stitching with my fine tip Prisma markers.
I really like how sweet she seems and I hope she makes you smile too :)
Have a great day!
