A gift card challenge

Hi everyone.
It's that time yet again for another Teddy Bo and Co challenge this time it's a gift card (a card that contains a gift.)
I normally always make cards so this challenge for me was a bit different  and I have to say I really enjoyed it in fact it has inspired me to try other things.
For this challenge I have made a Tea-Light card using the template by Lena Katrine Oien.
The paper I used to cover the front of the card is My Mind's Eye Tickled Pink "Engaging".
The inside of the card is covered with some Pink Raspberry Road paper I also  made a blank insert to go inside the card  with plain White  paper.
I cut a strip of cream swirly paper and adhered down the centre of the card I have had the paper sometime so I cannot tell you where it's from (sorry).

I have coloured TEDDYBEA_006 with Polychromos pencils  and added Berry Fizz glitter to her wand, the glitter is a freebie from one of my card making magazines.
I have cut out Bea  and adhered her with sticky pads on to an oval die which I have embossed with Sizzix "Cottage Style" embossing folder.
The 15mm roses are from WOC  and the white flowers are from The Ribbon Girl.

For the Tea-Light holder I have decorated either side on the top with  White  Daisy Lace this is from Pinflair I adhered Pink seed beads to the centre of each daisy the beads are from Framecraft.
I have glued light Pink 10mm satin edge organza ribbon from Fantastic Ribbons to the back of the card  and tied it into a bow at the front to hold the Tea-Lights in place.
Thank you for letting me enter my creation  and thank you for all the comments I recieve from you lovely crafters.
Until next time.
Big Hugs.

Wild Orchid crafts Challenge 52 anything goes.

I would like to enter my latest creation in to the Wild Orchid crafts challenge 52 anything goes.
For this I have made a wedding card.
The image I have used is TEDDYBOBEA-006. These adorable bears are from Teddy Bo & Co.
I have coloured the image with polychromos pencils, cut the image out and adhered it with sticky pads to a scalloped die which I cut with my Bigshot then attached to a white doily. 
The card is Cream Lattice by Susan Winget.
I can not remember where the floral swirly paper is from as I have had it in with my craft stash for quite some time.  Sorry because it is lovely paper.
I have used a dotty embossing folder on the paper down the left hand panel of the card this I like to do on most of my cards as I think it adds a nice texture.
The 15mm pink tone roses, Baby's Breath and 5mm cream pearls are all from WOC.
The sentiment is from LOTV.
Thank you for visiting.
Big Hugs.

Here is the finished card.

Here we have a close of the image.

I have coloured Bea with polychromos pencils, used icicle stickles on the cuffs of her coat, and round the top of her boots then cut her out i put her on to some white card that i embossed with a Sizzix cottage style embossing folder, i put that on to some red backing card.
For the card i used red and blue backing card fom WHSmith, and the papers are Portobello Road.
I used a white doily, Martha Stewart Arch Lattice edger punch. The red gingham ribbon was free with a magazine.
