DT Teddy- Stampers Challenge

Hello there! Are you hopping around going nuts in the malls or are you  like me and shop in your PJ's at home?  What's on your Christmas wish list this year? Me, I don't want much...just a  new craft room!! I have all my supplies in the spare bedroom and it is getting mighty crowded in there! I don't even have any space left under the bed. KWIM!

It's Friday wahooo! Every other Friday is Teddy-Stampers challenge! This week we are being sponsored by Elisabeth Bell! How awesome is that?  I was on Elisabeth's GDT and it was awesome,  who cannot love her adorable images! The random winner will win the beautiful digi I used in  my card today! Is she not sweet? I did a card similar to this one when I was on the DT, it was done in a hurry due to family matters and I hated it then and I hated now, so I tore it apart and did the whole thing over!! I love it. I did switch directions of the posing, because I like my images facing the right for some unknown reason! That is one of the beauties of digital images.Also,  I made a 3D tree instead of using the one in the digi. So come and join the fun and possible win this awesome digi created by the talented Elisabeth Bell!

Isn't it beautiful! I love it and my parents will receive it next week!!

The top of the card is 3 layers, 4 counting the scallop. I cut the DP and green card stock at the same time with my circle Nestability so they would line up exactly. I took a sheet of white card stock and dry embossed it and then slightly went over the top of it with a green ink pad to make it look like wall paper. I made the scallop by placing the the circle die with a larger scallop die on the green card stock and ran it through my Cuttle Bug at the same time. If you look closely you will see it is thicker on the left side and below the packages it is even thinner, but I was able to make it work!  I used think foam to separate the circle from the dry embossed cardstock. I really love the way it turned out. It is so much prettier in person!
