Little Boy Hugging Knees

Oh, I know I'm not very inventive with my post titles! but welcome to my blog today. Hope you find something here to interest you.
I went to the Craft Fair and found another little stamp stall that I missed on Thursday, but decided not to buy any more stamps. There were a couple of little boxed sets with teddies and hedgies that were very cute, but they were very small images. The other one that did tempt me was one with teddy bear parts that you could have put together and made a moveable image. I thought about it and even came back to it after a while but decided against it. I did buy another couple of punches as I thought I would probably get more use out of them.
Well here is my card and I'm still using some of Shirley's gift paper and card. This is card 4 and I have only a sliver of green left now but still some more of the DP.It's also another square card! I don't normally make them because they cost more to post.
The base is the blue card I used previously (also the last sheet so I have enough to make one more card) I layered some of the DP and then made a topper with the green textured card, punched with one of my new Martha Stewart punches - another layer of blue and DP. I stamped the image (a clear stamp from Prima Marketing) onto white card and coloured with Copic Markers, cut it out and adhered it to the white diecut. I used an olive Marvy Marker to make a line of faux stitching. I used 3 different circles and cut white card, DP and blue for the sentiment which comes from SU Petite Pairs, I finished off with some little acrylic square stickers for the corners.
I would like to enter this into Make It Monday Challenge #61
