DT Card for Lexi's Creations Bear Dress Up Dee

Lexi's Creations    Challenge #33 'When You Go Down to the Woods Today- Lets See All Those Bears:D'

Sponsor:  Letraset an online store dealing with things creative (eg: markers, pads, adhesives, tutorials and well go take a look....)

Oh I loved this challenge and it was such a fun card to make. I had it in my mind that there had to be a scroll involved.  I checked a lot of digital stamp sites without success, so did a google search until I found one I liked and could download. Halfway through making the card I rechecked the site where I had downloaded the scroll from and the site had disappeared. When I finally found the scroll again it said picture may be subject to copyrights, or something to that effect. So of course that was out and the search was on again. Finally found the one I subsequently used, then just last night I was on a stamp site and low and behold there were two scrolls, just as I envisioned the  scroll to be; was too late though, my card was made and I was not about to tear it apart :D

I figured the digital stamp from Fairy Dust Crafts of the little girl (her name is Dee) in the bear outfit  was perfect for this challenge, there she was all dressed up and ready to go to a bear picnic. She is just so happy about it all, can't you see the glee on her face. Oh, what a good time it is going to be. Of course I had to add some butterflies; I love butterflies!

Note: The words to the Teddy Bear's picnic were written by Jimmy Kennedy in 1932 for a melody composed by John Walter Bratton in 1907.

Stamp: Bear Dress Up Dee from Fairy Dust Crafts coloured with Prismacolors . I punched out some leaves from two MS punches and sat her on top of them (with tape).
Embellishments: the bears and the bees are from Michael's , the butterflies are from a MS punch and were stamped to match the pattern on the green background border. I added tiny pearls so they were not so bland.
Green background paper is Stampin Up's mellow moss, stamped with a  SU background stamp 
Chocolate Chip paper then frames the yellow and green paper the scroll is attached to. I had brayered whisper white paper to  make a background to reflect  a sunny day in a green meadow (at least that was my intention).
Scroll: Free Image Works I typed the first bit of the song onto the downloaded scroll.

The song has been going through my head for days now, can't seem to get rid of it (lol)
