Just Cute Bears #21 - Here comes summer!

A 'Summer' challenge today from Just Cute Bears!!
Show us your 'summer' themed teddy bear cards and creations :)
I have used summery colours and lots of flowers as I love all the brightly coloured summer bedding plants.
The cute little teddy is Penny Black and I have coloured the image with promarkers in hot, bright colours.
I punched the flowers around the image with my retro punches and placed the plaid paper underneath, an idea I saw and loved at my local craft shop :)
I added the buttons and scored the outer lines around the card for finishing touches.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges -
Stampin for the Weekend #40 - Summer/Travel...
Allsorts #56 - Lace and/or Buttons...
Do hop on over to the Just Cute Bears blog to see all the DT cards and check out this week's fabulous stamp prize from CUDDLY BUDDLY CRAFTS :)
Thanks for looking xx
