Posy Trio, erm, Quartet?

I saw quite a challenging sketch on Sketch Saturday and decided to give it a try.  The only image I thought I could use though was called Posy Trio from Lili of the Valley (which I've not used for a while, and really appealed), but the sketch needed four elements.  So I cheated and stamped one of the trio of teddies twice!

I also recently bought a new 6" square embossing folder being the same size as my normal card bases.  My other embossing folders are 5"x4" so they don't cover a whole card if I want them to.  I then get in a mess trying to overlap areas and it ends up looking like a jigsaw, so I have to use ribbon to cover the joins.

Saying that, I did pop a ribbon across the width of this card cos the sketch needed something there, so I'm not really sure what I've gained.


Anyway, hope you like my card.
