Autumn Bear

This is my entry for the Lili of the Valley Thursday Challenge No 68 and also Charismacardz Autumn themed challenge. I stamped the bear and coloured him with loads of copics then  cut a rectangle and matted it onto brown cardstock which was then mounted on a co-ordinating brown/fawn paper from Cosmo Cricket.  I choose orange, mid-brown and willow green 15mm satin ribbons from here and why I don't know, tried to weave them into the pattern you see here and stick them onto the stripey Cosmo Cricket background paper - it took the best part of the morning I spent at the Middlesbrough crop with Jean, Gail and Jan (happy birthday 10/10/10 Jan the chocolate cake was yummy!) and the girls!! 

I finished off the card with plenty of stickles glitter and added some cream and browny/fawny/goldy mulberry paper flowers from here and green leaves and was really pleased with it, because it was just that little bit different.
