Craft Rocket Challenges Number 10

Hello and thank you for calling in. If you can stay and leave a comment, I do appreciate it as I know time is very precious to us all.
Today's challenge is "Feathers and/or Fur Birds/Animals/Teddies" Please take a look at the other designers work and why not join in. I would love to see some familiar names on the entries.
I made this card for a friend. I have shown one similar to this here. But this one is a completely new layout/design for me. I wanted to do a frame and have "teddy" sitting on the edge of the frame. Now, I have one set of plain square dies and found it hard to line up the second die. It's a lot easier to line up the dies if you can use both sets of dies i.e. the A set and the B set, to get an even frame, lining up the ones you are not going to use for cutting and then removing them - does that make sense?  Anyway, it gave me the idea to do a wonky frame instead - no lining up hooray! I really like this effect - hence more have been made and used. I mounted the frame on 2mm foam tape. "Teddy" has been decoupaged and placed on top.

The first one, for Phoenix is the card I posted on Saturday. The colour is a pinky/lilac which matches the cardigan that was posted with it
