The teddy image is a topper by Lili of the Valley UK and you can find this particular teddy on their Cuddly Teddies DC007 sheet.
All I needed to do was stamp the sentiment (also by LOTV) - no colouring other than the flowers on the sentiment which I coloured with a red and yellow Prismacolor pencil. I added some Kindyglitz Crystalina to the flower centres on the sentiment and most of the flower centres on the image.
After I added the green scalloped circle to the sentiment, it looked a little lost on the card, so I diecut a red scalloped circle and glued that underneath to just add a bit more colour without making the sentiment panel any bigger.
The sentiment panel and the main image are popped up on dimensionals. The bow was attached in 2 different elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy.
See the button? It is old shop stock I inherited from my parent's Wool and Haberdashery shop and is 35 years old! All I had to do was cut off the shank with a pair of pliers then glue it onto the bow centre.
Not sure if you can tell, but on the bottom panel, I added a Scor-Pal line just above the punched green cs border; I find it easier to get the dp straight when lining it up with the Scor-Pal line rather than the punched border. I am usually pretty terrible at lining things up straight so I need all the help I can get LOL!!

This is outstanding! Love the image and the colors and dp you chose to go with it! Your bow/button panel is awesome. I love the border and the score line idea! I'm straight layering challenged, so I will be trying your idea on my next card with a border. Thanks so much for sharing your pretty card and great ideas!
