Teddy Bea with Wings

After 4 male cards I thought I'd compensate with a pink and girlie one, inspired by the Inkspirational photo. The layout is also inspired by a previous Inkspirational sketch .
This cards's taken me so long to make, I've been moving all bits and pieces around for hours! Always when I make pink cards I've got mixed feelings about the result. I guess we all experience that, especially when stepping out of our comfort zones...
I've used silver and brown colors in addition to all the pink. The flower patterned paper came free with a magazine. I used an embossing folder for the half circle. The flowers are stamped, I heat embossed them using holographic embossing powder, fussy cut them and added a pink pearl to each center. I wanted to use my silver glitter paper for my punched butterflies but couldn't find it, so I added the holographic embossing powder to scraps of silver and white paper instead - I think it works just as fine as with the real thing. I've used MB dies for the clouds, I added a rub on with a birthday sentiment to the largest one.
I used cork paper for the Marianne Creatables fence. Teddy Bea has been colored with Promarkers, and she's got a touch of glitter glue on her wings. I fussy cut her as well. I've machine stitched with glitter thread around the edges of the top layer.

I love the wy you made a scene with your image...popping the embossed circle just off the page was a brilliant idea!

I must remember to try using up some of my cork for a fence...another brilliant idea. You should not feel nervous to do the pink and girly ace them!!!

My goodness you get a lot of free paper in magazines! This one is so pretty and works so well with the rest of the card. Love all the pinks working together and that fence is really neat (I meant to mention it for your last one too). Great embossing, the flowers are pretty and I love the little pearls in the centres. Awesome card overall.

Your cards are inspiring me to take out my dusty embossing folders and do something with them. I love your little touches of dry embossing on so many of your cards. Thank you for posting such pretty cards that are inspiration for so many of us!! --Gail
