Hello All and welcome to a new challenge at Sparkles Forum Monthly Challenges, the winner and Top 3 have been posted already and we’re starting a new challenge today, one that has been picked by my talented teamie, Helen P.  We have a cute and simple theme for you this time round, and that’s Teddy Bears!

We have two sponsors again this month, first up is Bugaboo Stamps with 7 stamps for one lucky winner:

And $10 to spend at CraftyBren’s Embroidered Embellishments:

I used a new to me Popcorn The Bear stamp called Thanks A Bunch, and I coloured him up with my Prisma pencils, adding a little bit of Crystal Stickles to the centre of the flowers.

He was simply mounted on to lilac Bazzil card from the scrapbox and popped on to a 4.75″ card front.

The sentiment is from the same set and it was stamped in Memento Rosebud ink, it has a single little pink pearl on the dot of the exclamation point.

Such a cute image, and quite large too, I decided it didn’t need anything else!  I hope you have time to join in with us this month, with all the cute images that are available you should have no trouble finding one with teddy bears on in your collection!
