So Sweet Little Sailor Boy with Teddy from Mo Manning

Hello and happy day to everyone.   Boy am I enjoying the Olympics this year, its compulsive.  Congratulations to all the hard working Olympians.  I find it difficult getting off the couch for another cup of tea.

On to my card for today which features another figure from the fabulous Sailor Boys Set from Mo Manning.  I love these little chaps, so cute and I have tried to give a vintage feel to this Easel card.

List of Materials used to make this card.

12 x 12 Coredinations card stock cut down to make 6 x 6 inch Easel Card
Design papers are fabulous Pion Designs - Grandma's Schoolbook and Kaisercraft
Wonderful image detailed above coloured using Promarker Pens and Polychrome Pencils and Tim Holtz Vintage Distress Inks.
Die cuts are Spellbinders, Joy Craft and Marianne Designs - Anja Corner.
I was delighted to win fabulous candy from Jenny's Craft Corner.  Jenny has been very generous and I received a wonderful decorated Tilda Gift bag full of delicious goodies.  My card features wonderful die cuts which Jenny kindly provided from Unique Hobby Products. 
I have also used some design inspiration from Jenny's lovely bag in some of the detail on this card.  See flowers behind bow which I had not thought of doing before.
Ribbon and lace and Prima Flowers are from my stash. Small flowers are Whimsies by Websters Pages.
Dufex Butterfly, tassel and pearls are also from my stash.

I would like to enter this card for the following Challenges:

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this post and to look at my card.  Sending warmest wishes to you all.
