Simon says Stamp Something - in fact Stampalot of Teddy Bo in Deep Ocean or perhaps a bug suit!

I am beginning to feel a bit like a broken record in terms of my apologies for failing to visit my buddies.  I also feel a bit guilty that I have managed to make some cards but not managed to get around to commenting on your blogs.  But I have cards that need to be made.This one is for our grandson who will be 2 this week.  When I started picking out all the papers, I had a number of challenges in mind but I have been too slow to enter them .  Fortunately, in addition to Stamp Something who want to see "bugs or butterflies", a few easy challenges have come around that I can have a go at, namely:
Deep Ocean - where the challenge is to make a "card", Simon Says Stamp and Sir Stampalot - who both have an "anything goes" theme, and of course I have to enter into Teddy Bo where they want us to use "Teddybea only".

This little Bea looks such a cutie coloured up with Copics and Promarkers in her fun ladybug outfit.   I punched all the way down the right hand side of the DPs with my Martha Stewart ladybug punch.  All my papers, including the little accent bugs are by Debbie Mumm and I just added some Craftworks candy, a sticky spotty ribbon and bow and a little Stamps Away sentiment on a Stampin Up punched tag.
Teddy Bea's boots and the ladybug on her hand have been glazed for a bit of added dimension which is completely lost in my photo which I now notice is completely blurry around the edges!

Hi Lesley

What a gorgeous card.

To begin with I thought that you had turned the right hand side into a jigsaw .. .. but after reading your post and looking more closely I realise that it is the ladybird punch.

You have used such lovely colours and your colouring and shading of your image is fantastic.

Have a great weekend.

Love Jules xx

This card is gorgeous and perfect for a two year old. The colours are lovely and bright, the image is cute and beautifully coloured and I love, love, love how you've framed the number two on the scrummy number paper.
Thanks also for all your appreciated comments at mine. All the more special as I know how busy you are. xxx
