Finished Teddy Bo

Evening all!  Have you ever had one of those days where nothing gels or looks right?  I made 3 card fronts today, that is the papers before I add bellies and the image and none of it looked right together pfffffft!

Then I tried to photograph DT card and there's a chuffin oily fingerprint on my lens aaaargh!  Fone camera is ok so used that instead till i can clean camera properly.

Anyway got fed up of paper shuffling until I came across some digi papers and thought ooooh pwitty and finished off the Teddy Bo from the tutorial so you can see how it all comes together and the card just flowed and fell into place.

I added pink and yellow distress ink around the edge, you can thank Kim Reygate for that combo as I would never have put them together but I saw a project Kim did in CM &P mag a while ago using that combo and I've loved it since.

So pleased with the finish on this, not too overboard not too minimal - i can't do CAS either as i love colour too much :)

Isn't it funny how a day of frustration ends with one that just falls into place :)

Id like to enter into...
Teddy Bo - Anything goes

BTW sorry if my img has checks over it, my Fone or blogger app does it so I'll replace when on pc tommoz
PS Sheila if you pop me your addy I can send it you so you can have a real life looksie x
