Thanks to everyone who joined in last week with our Soft & Sweet challenge... and so many gorgeous entries again from you all... so sorry for not being able to get round to you at the end of the week.. would you believe after finaly getting my internet connection sorted out at home.... it went down whilst at my OH on Wed and haven't been able to get online till last night... nightmare !!!

Anyway onto this weeks challenge and we have another great one for you... a little....

I decided to go with a soft again this as I wanted to use my new BG ~ Lemonade Paper Pad ... also after making my SS card I wanted something a little different.. and you'll see why later... I love love this adorable Teddie and think he looks perfect with soft colours and textures. I've cheated a little a replaced some of the ribbon with Raffia and Lace... so Im sure it'll be ok if you want to do the same....

My card came together rather quickly this week... which was great.. as it normally takes me some time...

I love the rich colours of these gogeous BG ~ Wisteria papers and am pleased with the outcome.. apart from the colour of Tilda's dress which has come out a little more blue than purple.. oh well too late now. All

So here's this weeks sketch and Im sure your going to have as much with it as I did.
