Single layer Elzy challenge

Yep, time for another Elzybell fortnightly challenge! This time, Paula picked the challenge ~ to make a single layer card. I thought I'd do something besides a white card base, so I used pale plum. The teddy is colored in w/ markers and I paper pieced his pillow w/ some retired SU dp. I used my circle nesties to emboss him and pierced around the outer edge. For the bottom, I used the threading water (or is it treading??) scallop border punch from Fiskars. You know, the one that punches the little hole in each scallop? Well, I centered my $1 heart punch I'd gotten from Michael's over the hole so that now there's a little heart in each scallop. Love it when a plan comes together!! ha! It's the little things, right?! To sort of highlight each heart, I added a gem to the center on the inside of the card. Whatcha think??
Go to the Elzybell blog to see what the rest of the DT did ~ who'd have thought single layer cards could be so stinkin' adorable??!!!! Thanks for stopping by!
