Time For A Sketch Challenge!

Hope you are doing great today and that you are feeling up to a great challenge! Starting today, Meljen's Designs would like you to create something featuring this sketch:
Fun huh! I love all the layers! Here is what I came up with:
I decided to make a "Thanksgiving Day" card because I live in Canada and we celebrate this wonderful holiday in October. For the image I picked "Teddy Pilgrims" and coloured them with my Copics. I don't own a really big pretty die [and I didn't trust my shaky hand to cut out a nice shape], so I used this pretty "pre-cut" shaped DP by Little Yellow Bicycle, which I have had for at least a year! I did use a couple of Spellbinder Dies to cut out the image and it's matting and the flowers,[again using papers that I've had forever!]. It's kinda hard to tell from the picture but I folder embossed the cardstock base of the card. I added a few gem stones to the flower centers and some silver paint pen to the buckles on the bear's hat and shoe. I cut a strip of glittery paper and adhered it along the bottom.
For more inspiration and to enter your card in the challenge head on over to the Meljen's Blog.
Until next time.
