Let sleeping bears lie

I am so happy to have this weekend off after a couple of very busy weeks both at work and out of it, the Edinburgh Festival Fringe is all over, my niece and her bff have gone home after being with us for nearly 5 weeks (will miss your chatter girls!) and I plan to have a relaxing weekend and try to fit in as much crafting time as I can! 

Today I'd like to share my card for Crafty Calendar's September challenge where the theme is Let sleeping bears lie - we want to see a bear on your card/project but it doesn't need to be sleeping! The challenge is sponsored by Crafty Sentiments  who have some lovely rubber and digital stamps in their store. There is also a DT call at Crafty Calendar right now so pop on over and check it out and look at the team's inspirational bear projects!

I have used a Teddy Bo image for my card which I coloured with my trusty Promarkers, adding some Stickles for a bit of sparkle.

Would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
