Digi Haven DT Card - Picnic

It's challenge time again at Digi Haven, and this fortnight our theme is "Picnic", and we're sponsored by MyGrafico, who very kindly gave the DT a digi kit to play with.  We had great fun creating a teddy bear's picnic, I chose this cute watermelon munching chap, and had the words "If You Go Down to the Woods Today....." from the song Teddy Bear's Picnic in mind as I made this card.
 I coloured the image with Pro and Flexmarkers, then used SeeDees stamps and various green Distress Inks to stamp leaves round the edge of the topper.  I cut a square from kraft card and used a Spellbinders Adorning Squares die to add some interest, then stamped the same leaves round the edges of this mat as the topper.  The dark green layer is kraft core Core'dinations, which I embossed with an Embossalicious leafy folder, then sanded.
To embellish, I added some ribbon, a triple bow topped with a button, some flowers and leaves made with with Woodware and Nellie Snellen Punches, some tiny green pearls, and a sentiment stamped with a Stampin' Up Stamp.
