Ildico teddy bear & faux quilt

I got in the mood for baby cards last week when I was creating a card for Ildico's challenge so this week I made another one. This time a baby boy card with a faux quilt background. I used various scraps of baby papers for it.
The Teddy is printed on a sticky sheet and colored with Prisma pencils.
If you are wondering why on sticky sheet here is the story - the company I work for is using these big half sheet labels for printing postage online. Quite often there is only one label printed so half of the sheet stays empty. I felt bad to just throw them out so I was thinking what could I use them for... and tadaaa - started printing my digi images on them. The surface is nice and smooth - great for coloring and you don't have to use glue to stick them on! :)

the patchwork blanket is so neat, and I love the idea of using the leftover label bits, way to go for the environment and the pocketbook!
