I am back and crafting again

Hello sorry it has been a long time since I have posted anything on my blog, but I am back now with more enthusiasm for learning new things from other people. I have not done much crafting for a while, only making quick cards to take into the clic sargent shop. Clic sargent is the childrens cancer charity that helped Lana our granddaughter when she was ill.
I have made this card for a girl I work with who has recently become a grandparent.
I have had that stamp for a while, but I just love this teqnique of stamping on acetate and using pearl crystal laquers to create a teddy bears fur effect. I layered it onto a spellbinders die cut. I cut a thin sliver of the backing paper to thread through the die to make a ribbon slider effect The balloon is from the up up and away spellbinders die set and is sprayed with crafters companion spray and sparkle. I made it into an easel card with added embellishments. Thankyou so much for looking and any comments would be very much appreciated.
