My DH and I have been married 20 years today - amazing how quickly 20 years has passed. He buys me lots of teddy bears, so here is the card I chose to make for my DH:
Stamp Newton Bear (this was a cute freebie with a UK Cardmaking mag) onto WC paper and colour with Prismas and Gamsol. Add red Kindyglitz to heart and highlights to bear and heart with white gel pen. Diecut and emboss with Nesties Labels Two, then diecut and emboss next size up using Dark Berry Red cs. Attach square of dp to beige cs and Deep Creamy Cocoa cs. Pierce holes around beige cs. Cut strip of beige cs and pierce holes on top and bottom and attach to strip of same cocoa cs. The 1" wide ribbon is a piece of Velveteen ribbon which I saved from my 1st job over 30 years ago in a Haberdashery Shop - I knew I'd have a use for it one day! I have attached the 10mm red glittery ribbon I purchased from Spotlight over the top. Stamp sentiment on WC paper with Warm Red ink pad and attach to Dark Berry Red cs, rounding corners on each layer. Attach Bear and Sentiment using mounts. Lastly punch 6 hearts from Dark Berry Red cs, add red Kindyglitz and mount onto dp.
Hope you like my card and your comments are always appreciated!

Jocelyn, this card is so lovely - that bear is the cutest and looks fabuloous with all you have done to him and this surrounds. Your DP is perfect and I LOVE both ribbons - they are so effective together! Well done! Thanks for sharing!
