Leprechaun Friendship Bear

Today, I am sharing this teddy bear design with a leprechaun friendship theme.  This is the start of a new designer challenge over at My Creative Time.  Nikki's theme choice for this challenge is "embossing", either dry, heat or both.  

The front sentiment is "Top O' the mornin' to you" and the inside sentiment is "Lucky to have a friend like you!" 

This little bear is perfect for St. Patrick's Day, but I wanted it to be a friendship card. Emma's sentiments fit so well for either, I think.  I used the Diamond Plate dry embossing folder for the bear's frame background.  I chose this decorative paper because of the sunburst look which goes great with the sentiment. The colors are green tones, yellow, gold and white. I had this pretty glitter ribbon and used it for the trim.  This was finished by a touch of glitter glue added to the pot of gold and hat.  

Tools used include:

My Creative Time Curly Label Die, Stitched Curly Label die & I Believe In Leprechauns stamp set, glitter glue, Cricut Teddy Bear Parade Cartridge, Unity Stamp Co Samantha Walker Ornate Artisan Stackers stamp & Spellbinders die, light green glitter ribbon, Cuttlebug, Diamond Plate embossing folder, BasicGrey paper, distress marker, and adhesive.
