A Happy Accident

I was a little naughty yesterday and just had to buy some more Teddy Bo images and I thought this of Teddy Bea sitting would look perfect on a frame so I printed her off and started to colour.  That's when the happy accident came to light.  I have three light pink coloured lids of Copics and so I just picked up one to use but didn't read the label.  To my horror it was V95 light grape and I wasn't sure what to do so I continued colouring in her dress etc.  All of a sudden the light grape colour grew on me and I thought it was certainly an unusual colour for a bear but I liked it so that's how she stayed.  The card has been completed from papers I have been given, handmade papers I won in some blog candy last year, sentiment off the computer, ric-rac ribbon, seam binding ribbon, organza ribbon, gems, flowers, heart pins and lots and lots of love and attention to detail.  I have highlighted areas of the papers, Bea's pom-poms and the flowers with some Stickles to add some glitter and bling.
