Flower for a Friend


Hi everyone.  Today's card is for the latest challenge at CAS-ual Fridays (CFC109 - Polka-dots).  I used an adorable image from Bugaboo that I got for free (they have a new free image every Friday).  Isn't he the cutest??  ... and I just love his polka-dot flower.  Hope you like too!





Stamps:  Tall Flower Bear (Bugaboo); Sentiment Sampler (Paper Smooches)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs); Snap Color Vibe (Simple Stories); Soft Suede, Regal Rose (SU!)
Ink:  Soft Suede (SU!); Copics:  Y97, Y99
Accessories & Tools:  Stylus and mat, glue, adhesives, Stamp-a-ma-jig, and dimensionals

The bear and flower are paper pieced.  For the flower, I added a second layer after shaping each petal with my stylus (only glued at the center), to give the flower dimension.



Here's a close-up:

This is such a cute image, hard to believe it is a free digi. I seem to miss all the 'good freebies', when I check, it is usually something that I prob'ly wouldn't use. This one is delightful, and I love all your paper piecing, which made it all your own. So adorable. I'm with Darnell, you are the Queen of P.Piercing. TFS
