Smartie Bear

Evening Folks!
This is a rare event, two posts in one day but I finished a card this afternoon and I'd like to get it entered into the Pollycraft Monday challenge before it closes!! My mojo was a bit lacking today, which is typical - when I have time to play it disappears and when I have no time there are plenty of ideas going through my mind. Anyway, I found a new (to me anyway) challenge, called Ready Teddy Go, which has the theme 'It's a wrap' and so your piece has to be influenced by packaging and also feature a bear. This made it perfect for me, so here's my take on it :

Inspiration is Smarties packaging:

A few Smarties were eaten during the creative process too, which helped a lot!!

The gorgeous bear is Cuthbert from Pollycraft and I've used their sketch for this one too,  I just rotated it!


This has to be one of my favourite bears, so cute and easy to colour:

 The papers are quite old, I think they are by Dovecraft but I'm not too sure as they aren't in their original pack anymore!! Tidy, me - never!!

Here's a peek at the sentiment brad too, again antique stash by Around the block and at least 3 years old!!!
 Thanks for looking this evening and I hope you've had a good weekend!

P.S. I'd also like to enter the challenges at:
