To My Special Friend

Good Morning...Happy Groundhog Day! I'm sure most of the nation is ready for spring! Here is a card I made for my good friend Gigi for Valentine's Day, using The Cutting Cafe Happy Valentine's Huge Word Circle printable stamp set (To My Special Friend) and the All About Valentine's Day set (Happy Valentine's Day) for the sentiments. This is my second attempt at a tear bear and while I still have a long way to go, I'm OK with the way it turned out.
Here is the recipe---
Card Size: A2
Paper Piecing: Mulberry Torn Paper
Nestabilities: Heart/Scallop, Tag
Cuttlebug: Love Language Card Making Combo
Punches: Marvy Small Paw (eyes and pads of feet), Fiskars Heart Corner Punch (nose and feet)
Sentiment: Cutting Cafe-Happy Valentine's Huge Word Circle, All About Valentine's Day
Accessories: Ribbon, Chalk, Gel Pen, Foam Pop Dots, Charm, Flat Back Pearls
