Once again, it's about Tammy and the bears!

So, a day or two ago, I posted about the sweet and awesome bear that Tammy made for me. Even though I commissioned her to make the bear, I wanted to send her a special thank you for her compassion and just overall fabulousness. Here's what I came up with:
There is a very thin layer of red around the outside of the card. Due to my measuring snafu, it's not as thick as it should be. Hopefully, that does not detract from the card. The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts, with the exception of the big red rose. I got that at the Dollar Store. Papers are Prima, sent to me for my birthday by my great friend, Terri. I got a huge roll of red tulle on sale for 70% off at Hobby Lobby after Valentine's Day, so I added it to the card, too. I have tons left! The image is colored with copics on Hammermill paper. I have so many wonderful friends...another one of them (Tracy) sent me the Hammermill to try. She loves it, but it didn't work for me. I'm sticking with my Gina K or Neenah. I love that Tracy was generous enough to share her stash of Hammermill so I could try it, though. Wasn't that sweet of her?

So, anyway, this card is based on this week's sketch at Friday Sketchers. I'm also entering it in the Belles N Whistles challenge to use red, pink and white on a card, as well as the DYSU challenge to layer. As you can see, I layered paper upon paper upon paper. It's a pretty heavy card! I hope it makes Tammy smile.
