Fizzy Moon and Flowers

I hadn't made a teddy bear card for a while so I dug out my favourite Fizzy Moon stamp for a play.  I stamped him in Rich Cocoa Memento ink, I like the soft look with this colour rather than black for some soft and fluffy images.  He's been coloured, as usual, with Promarkers, die cut with a nestie and I've inked with Tumbled Glass Distress Ink while it's still in the die.  I quite often do this with the largest nestie to give a border as there's no larger shape to layer up with.
The papers are Fizzy Moon too, layered onto a scalloped blank which has also been inked with Tumbled Glass.
The embossed panels were done with a Papermania Triboss folder which had been inked with Spun Sugar Distress Ink before passing through my Cuttlebug, just to give a hint of colour and highlight the button design.
The flowers were made with Xcut floral dies which I've then crimped with tweezers to add texture.  I continued with the button theme adding button centres to the flowers.
I've finished off with a pink bow and some gem and Diamond Stickles accents to the image.
