Theodore is such a cutie but thought I would go with the lady bug theme. I did use Martha Steward lady bug corner and border. I will tell you how I got it to punch out so well if you do not want to know just skip over this. My card size is 5 1/2” by 5 1/2” and I needed to have the paper cut to 5” by 5” . Now you need to punch the corners out first making sure you get right into the corners. Now you can do the borders making sure your lady bug line up with the corner bug so now you have 2 lady bugs so the next cut you want to do is make sure the first lady bug line up with the first lady bug on the punch.  If you want another size to make a small square or have a problem let me know and I will help you or give you the measurements.

The sentiment and the (have no idea what you call it) Bee Buzz is from Whipper Snapper. Added some glossy accents, peal pen colors in red and black.

For the inside, did the same as out side. These are the copic markers used to color the image.

Sizzix Ticket #657569 is what I cut the image out with. Used a rag to get the texture on the bear by adding some alcohol to the rag and holding it on the image for a few seconds.
