Fairy bear

Life has just been waaaaay too busy this year.  And my New Year's resolution was to not be so busy!  I've made hardly any cards so far this year.  I normally make 60+ (not counting Christmas cards), so this is pretty pitiful.

Anyway, I started this card more than a month ago, and now I've finally finished it.  It's for my little niece.  I'm almost too embarrassed to send this now, but I did make it for her, so I shall send it anyway.

  Image: from Dustin Pike
  Coloring: colouring pencils and baby oil.
  Flower: Synthetic flower from bunch from cheap shop.
  Other details: The "ribbon" is a string of sequins, I've used a star-shaped brad to attach the flower, the fairy bear panel is up on foam mounts.

I'm submitting this to Dustin's current challenge, which is to make a birthday card using one of his images.  By submitting it to the challenge, I receive "Pike's Points" - these are redeemable as a discount when purchasing digital stamps from him.  I figure this is a win-win situation, as his images are great, and they aren't that expensive to start with!
