The current challenge at The Teddy Bo Blog is “Red, White & Blue — and bling”.  I wanted to enter this challenge but I wanted to do something a bit different from the “Royal” theme.  I thought that this Teddy Bea was cute and wanted to use her.  “idea ”   She has an envelope in her hand and airmail envelopes had red, white and blue stripes around the border.  So here is my card –

I stamped the card base with a Hero Arts cling stamp “old letter”.  Next I cut the border off an old airmail enveloped which I have stored away since I was a teenager and used to have “pen pals”.   (:lol:  I knew it would come in handy one day).  I found these great little vintage digital envelopes on Etsy at “Vintage by me”.  The red, white & blue twine was in my stash.

Teddy Bea is constructed – yes constructed or is it deconstructed? – using this tutorial by Mandi-Lee on Copic Oz.

Hope you enjoyed your weekend. 

Bye for now,
