Cute and Cuddly *SFYTT*

Happy Saturday everyone! I am so glad to be back participating in this week's SFYTT! I took a little break; a needed break, but it made me realize how much I enjoy each week's new sketch. Jen is absolutely amazing and I feel like some of my best work has come from using her great sketches. So thanks Jen!
I have been in baby mode lately and I needed one more card for a cute gal in the neighborhood who just had her new baby boy. I have had her gift for a while now, so it is about time I got around to the card! Since I only used one design of pattern paper{and you all KNOW how much I love pattern paper}, I decided to create my own by using background stamps & my cuttlebug to add some texture.

For as much as I love Baby Button Bits, I have never used the teddy bear image. I have tried, but I don't think it has ever actually made it onto a card. I decided to paper piece him rather than use markers to color him. Because the image shows some stitching lines, I thought I would bring in some real stitching and sew along the edges of the focal piece as well as some zig zag stitching at the bottom.

The sketch called for a straight layer at the bottom, but I liked the idea of using the sentiment as a tag instead. The sentiment is also from Baby Button Bits. I am glad I am back this week using this fabulous sketch. I hope you all have a chance to play along. Let's see what the other gals have been up to:
