Hi , for less is more challenge

Hi to all of my visitors . Welcome to my room . Hope that you are having a grand day/evening .
It is cool but with a little sunshine here in Adelaide . Was out early this morning, 8.30 am, for coffee and toasted ham and cheese sandwich at a nearby bakery . We generally meet up with a couple of friends here on a Sunday , where  we discuss the past weeks  world events and share our opinions on just about everything .
No  usual craft friends over today  as they all have other things happening today so might try to tidy some shelves and drawers in my room this afternoon .
But after this post if you dont mind.
My two Carols came yesterday for a workshop .Carol P. finds it hard at this stage to do any thing crafty at home but Carol J shared this card with us .
  A side fold card with  embossed  1/2 front folded back .The top has a scalloped oval with patterned paper behind to match the same on the inside back . Carol J . cut out a bug image from paper to place in scallop oval . then placed her sentiment under that . Great take on one we made in earlier class , well done Carol J.
And now for my card which I would like to enter into Less is More challenge .

Hi. I love your cute teddy and the shades of blue.
I hope you manage your sorting out session later today. We all need to do it now and then.
Toasted ham and cheese butties sounds more like something I would have for tea than a Sunday breakfast, but that must have set you up for the day. Have a good one. Kate x

That's a great card! I love the technique you've used to make teddy a little more "fuzzy".
