Tip-Toe Through the Tulips at SSW!

Isn't this teddy just the sweetest one you've seen - especially as he tiptoes through the spring tulips. I wish our tulips were out - at least it won't be long now. We're expecting 60 degrees by the end of the week here in Michigan and hopefully that will start a few buds popping and other visible signs that Spring is arriving! This darling teddy is Cocoa from Digi Stamp Boutique - this week's sponsor at Sweet Sketch Wednesday !

The Digi Stamp Boutique has been a long time sponsor of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenges. This week Sally Ann, the owner, is offering 6 free images to the Grand Prize Winner of the sketch challenge.

 Here the sketch for the challenge this week. This is another fun one to create with!

I colored "Cocoa" with copics, carefully selected them to match the colors in the DP I picked up just for pairing with this sketch and image this week.  The DP is from Piggy Tales "Thumbelina Collection". I made the flower out of the tulip DP and felted wool from PTI using their flower dies.

Now I do hope you'll return to the Sweet Sketch Wednesday site and view the samples the design team created to inspire you. Better yet, visit their blogs and let them know how much you love their work!

Thanks for stopping by today!

Fantastic coloring, you matched the paper perfectly. I thought this was a pre-colored image that came with papers. Cute, cute bear.

Another gorgeous card Sharon! That's one thing I really need to plant in our front flower bed - tulips! Such a beautiful site when the snow starts to melt.
