Paperplay on a Cute Card Thursday with TeddyBo for Sketch and Stash

I have seen a number of blog buddies using the new TeddyBo images and I just love them.  Problem is that with all of the images I already have (many of which have never seen ink!) and those that are on order too, I had to ask myself "do I really need one?"
You bet your sweet furry teddy bear I did! 
Having spent some time on their website I narrowed down my selection to 8!!!

This one is TeddyBea.  Isn't she adorable?!  And very good value too! She is coloured mostly in Copics with just the odd Promarker.  Papers are DCWV Garden Party and the ribbon and buckle are from stash.  The sentiment is Penny Black stamped onto a dimensional sticker which may or may not be Papermania.
The DCWV panel is pre-sparkled but is not evident in the photo.  I used stickles on TeddyBea's wings and pompom and I glazed her wellies and the star.   This is the first time I have ever used my Stamps Away grass stamp. I like it a lot but it wasn't such a good idea when it came to adding shine to Teddy's boots as I had to glaze around the grass!   All the glistening bits of my card make it suitable for both PaperPlay who want us to "add shine" and Cute Card Thursday who want to see "Shiny happy cards".   I just LOVED the "sketch" I used from Sketch and Stash and of course I had to enter into the Teddy Bo challenge where the theme is "in the Pink".
POSTSCRIPT - as the light changed today, I managed to get a photo showing some of the shine, at least on her wellies!
