Sending You a Smile

I had a bit of a naughty moment in the craft shop the other day.  The new limited edition Tim Holtz spring Distress Inks had just arrived and of course I just had to have them!  The colours are gorgeous and so pretty and are, Squeezed Lemonade, a zesty bright lemon, Peacock Feathers, a vivid turquoise and Shaded Lilac which I've used on this card on some of the layers, the edge of the topper and the scallops of the blank.
The sweet stamp is from the Forever Friends Black and Gold range and has been coloured with Promarkers.  I'm often asked which colours I use for these bears and they are, working from dark to light, Apricot, Mustard, Pastel Yellow and Vanilla, with Vanilla and Ivory for the muzzle and Cocktail Pink for the insides of the ears and the cheeks.
The patterned papers are Papermania, from the Boofle range and the embossed panel was made with a Cuttlebug folder.
The sentiment is also from the Black and Gold range and the flowers were made with my favourite Woodware punch.
I've finished off with some ribbon, a bow, a few gems and some Liquid Pearls.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
Ready, Teddy, Go - #10 - bingo - flowers, embossing, ribbon
Forever Friends - May - spring
Crafty Sentiments Monthly - spring
