August ATCs - Teddybears

The theme for our group's ATCs this month is teddybears and these are the set I've made to swap.  The images were taken from a CD called Smiley Bears by Betty Davies from Doolicrafts and are available to print in colour, black and white or sepia as I've done.  I kept the sepia tones going by choosing a toning backing card from Kanban, sponging the edges with Stampin' Up chocolate chip ink and then using a PSX paw stamp to create a paw print background.  There is a lovely sentiment stamp in this set of stamps which says "If all else fails hug your Teddy".  This always reminds me of my son as he had a teddy, given to him when he was born, and if ever he was bothered about something he'd go and hug this Ted.   

The embellishments were made using Woodware daisy punches and quickutz dies and were cut from scraps of card in the same colour theme.  The grosgrain ribbon is also in chocolate chip from Stampin' Up.

I'd like to enter these ATCs in the following challenges
