I absolutely love colouring this adorable little Flower Teddy. I used stazon jet black ink and stamped the sentiment onto the acetate. Layered two strips of vellum underneath the acetate. Created the sentiment banner. Assembled the base card and sewed around the edges. Matted the image panel and sewed around the edge. Image panel and sentiment are popped up. Finished the inside of the card.
Thanks for looking,

I have never tried sewing with a machine on my cards, but I have wanted to--I no longer have a machine though... I really like the look of this sewing. Your focal image is colored so beautifully, so much vibrance and light in those colors, and that sweet bear peeking out has so much personality! I love the belly band around the focal image in vellum, the sentiment stamped on vellum is a really neat touch which adds some unique texture. The DSP almost looks like abstract balloons, so much fun in the patterns you have chosen. There's so much fun in this card, it is brimming with personality and energy, I love it!!!
Thank you so much for leaving your kind comment on my hand-stitched Rainbow Rows card, I really appreciate it.

Your card has so many fun details. I love the little bits of CS on the end of your vellum banner. The stitching around and even inside the card is wonderful. That bear is adorable and your coloring is fabulous. Loving every bit of it!
