Teddy Stampers Challenge # Spring

What's more beautiful than a spring day, bright yellow daffodils bathed in sunshine, that was my inspiration for my DT card.
So the  new challenge for you today over at Teddy Stampers, is a creation with spring in mind.
Just a reminder you must have a stamped or digi TEDDY BEAR image on your creation.
My fellow DT members have some gorgeous inspiration for you.

I'm entering my card into the Just Cute Bears challenge too.
 It was the turn of the lovely Annie to choose the challenge, which is a colour combo of yellow and green gorgeous spring colours.

I love making easel cards, but they are a bit difficult to photograph. the base is always in the shadow and so the colour comes out darker. If anyone has any tips i'd be very greatful.
My image is Popcorn Bear Someone Special stamp set by Crafter's Companion.
 I'ts a lovely large image but as you can see at the top you can use a portion of it.

As promised the copic and Promarker colours are:
bear: E30 31 33 34 and E08 on his foot
daffodils: Y11 15 YR23
greens: G14 promarker pear green
duck: Y11 promarker honeycomb
shading around bear: C1 + blender
background: I used chalk.

The DT papers are by Brenda Walton from my stash
Martha Stewart picket fence punch
I tried in vain to get paper daffodils, had to settle for these silk ones. There were lots of Easter goodies reduced at Hobbycraft in store last Saturday. I got 2 Easter punches by Martha Stewart for £8.99 each!!!
I put pearl brads in the center of the flowers, from  the Hobby House
 and a punch by McGill for the leaves.

I am going to try and make a card this week for the challenge ( i did make a teddy card last week surprise surprise, but once i had made it i found it didnt really met the requirements of your challenge on Teddy stampers ! - however it would meet this weeks lol!- never mind - who needs an excuse to make another card!) I lovethe daffodils in the card - they are one of my favourite flowers. I also love that little white picket fence - what a great idea!
