Just A Scrappin Design Team Challenge - Teddy Bears

Hi all! Have you ever had a moment where your creative juices weren't quite flowin'? Well, for this challenge that was simply the case. I started with the idea in my head and just had the most difficult time putting it all together. Hey, but I didn't give up! I will punch a hole on the left and right side at the top and pull some ribbon through it. It'll hang on my door very nicely.

12 x 12 Chip board (Joanns)
12 x 12 White Colorbok card stock
Coordinations card stock in green, yellow/gold and orange
Gold foil paper
Green glitter paper (Coordinations)
White Gel Pen
Green glitter
Glue pen
Cricut Cartridges: Teddy Bear Parade, Simply Charming, Designer's Calendar, Elegant Edges, Create A Critter 2
Ribbon: crinkle ribbon
Glubers: Cool stuff that I'm going to try and do a tutorial on. This was for the rolled flowers. I couldn't figure out where to put an quilling embellishments so I did the rolled flowers.

First, I glued the white card stock onto the chip board. I cut the black frame edges from Elegant  Edges (pg 43). I used my Gypsy to cut this at 11.65 x 1.00.
All the Teddy Bear pieces were cut at 10 inches. On the eyes I used a white gel pen as well as the pant legs, bow tie and boots. I hand traced the lapel of the jacket and manually cut it. Otherwise it would have been green and blended in. That's just how the cartridge is. I used a glue pen around the edges of the lapel and added Martha Stewart glitter.
I cut the out the pot and rainbow at 3 inches (pg. 33) of Simply Charmed then cut the rainbow stripes. Layer 1 in yellow/gold, then two cuts of layer 2 in green and one in orange. This was the first time I'd made this cute little pot. It was a little confusing at first. The "lucky" word was cut out at one inch from Simply Charming (pg. 32). I used a black gel pen to add the face.
I used a small circle punch for the gold that's in the pot. They are made of gold foil paper.
The four leaf clover on his nose (cut at 1 inch) and the one under the "Happy St. Patricks Day" (cut at 3 inches) was from green glitter card stock. I used Designer's Calendar.
The "Happy St. Patricks Day" was cut at 2 inches. It's from the Create A Critter 2 cartridge. First I cut the Phrase in black then the "St. Patricks" in green.
I placed the four rolled flowers on each of the corners. I have a BUNCH of ribbon but believe it or not did not have a bright green that went well the the color scheme.
All in all it turned out cute.
