Hi Shell! I just love commenting on your cards; I love the thoroughness with which you write up your posts! You are such a teacher - it is great! This card is yummalicious. I love the background frame cut and how you threaded it with the ribbon. The color of the ribbon is just like the edge of a baby blanket with the silk look! The teddy - omg I just want to squish it! You have colored it in such a great artistic way. It looks stippled, such as I took in University, something only an educated artiste would know how to do!!! It is stellar and makes your teddy look SOOOOO real and so 3D. And how that teddy is holding it's little stuffy. OMGOSH it is so adorable. The colors are so perfect and warm and just like one could imagine for something so warm and fuzzy. Your beatles song is SOOOO perfect for this Shell. I love what you picked. When I saw it I could hear the song in my head and just feel the little teddy squeezing it's little baby! Thanks so much for coming over to Musically Challenged Challenge and I so hope you will join us again. You really rocked this challenge. How fun that you matched the beatles song so well!!!! It really is a blast from the past for us, as DT and must be for you all too. Soulfully Yours, Samara DT MCC
