Flower Power

My card today is one of those that came together so quick and easily and which I'm pleased with.

This super decoupage bear image and sentiment is from Joanna Sheen's 'Gruffies & Happy Hoppers' cd. The background paper is Prima 'fairy belle' collection and the darker piece is from my loose sheet pile so not sure where from. To finish I added lace, flowers and a silver peel-off corner from my stash.

and a closer look to show the decoupage layers

I shall enter this in the following challenges

House Mouse & Friends Monday challenge 'flower power / anything goes'
Mod Squad challenge 'lavender and lace'
CAS-ual Chic challenge 'pretty patterns'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'lace'
CD Sunday challenge 'bear with me'
