Just Swinging By

Hi there, two blog posts in one week!
Wanted to keep it simple with this cute little teddy on a swing. He's from Lili of the Valley, my favourite stamps to colour. I've entered this card into the Crafty Little Fairies blog challenge 'cute n cuddly critters'.
Really straightforward this card. Image coloured with copics, cut with a netsie and mounted on a slightly larger oval. The hardest part if this card is getting all the little bits out of the Marianne lattice die. I always rub my intricate dies with a bar of soap on the cutting side, it really helps to release all the little bits.
Background panel embossed with a cuttlebug folder and edged with a Martha Stewart punch. All mounted up on some Bo Bunny double dot with a little ribbon and a few gems and job done!
Thanks for swinging by.
