Favorite Teddy Bear I

PERSONAL NOTE: 
You're all cordially invited to visit (and like) my new Facebook page via the link on the side of this blog.
Now on to the present post....
I've been having a LOT of fun using the Favorite Teddy Bear stamp set (Stampin' Up) this past week-end, so be prepared for a teddy dominated week here on my blog!
My (9 yr.old) daughter and I spent some time together (in the craft room) last Friday and came up with several different teddy scenes for you. 
This first one was a lot of fun - in part because we both made the same card -- just changed up a few small elements and colors.
I used some white flocking on the cloud -- to make it puffy, added a bit of glitter (Studio G) to the heart on the envelope, and also added a yellow bow to the bears head.
I hand drew (and cut out) the tree, popping it up with dimensional tape.
For the grass, I tore a strip of paper and cut it with multi blade scissors. You can see that I scrunched it up a bit to make it more interesting.
The fence was also hand cut.
Lastly, I added some faux stitching around the card's outside edges and around the tree. I think it gives it a more finished look!

Here's the card my daughter made - just like mine!
I'm linking this to:
Stampin' Sisters In Christ where the challenge is to use:
1) oval or circle (my cloud)
2) at least two papers (I used more than that!)
3) at least one embellishment (does a bow, glitter, and flocking count?)
