Morning Folks!
Our new challenge has just started over at Sweet Stampin' and this time we'd like to see your projects inspired by a 


No prizes for guessing which film I went for!! I just wish I had more Paddington stamps in my collection, this one was a magazine freebie from several years ago. This card is going to be for my nephew, who is also a big PB fan - we went to see the film together! I wanted to keep the design fairly CAS but went for a joy fold to add a bit of interest.

The papers are from Country Companions Christmas 'Winter Wishes' collection and the bear himself has been coloured with promarkers, here's a closer look:
