Here Come The Boys Teddy Bears Challenge

The theme for the new challenge starting today over at Here Come The Boys is "Teddy Bears" and I have a card that's "right out of the box" for my DT contribution... well, it's a "wobble" card, which at least makes me think of a Jack in the Box, so nearly the same!
 I've used the gorgeous Teddy - Present image from Bugaboo, who's sponsoring the challenge this time around - with a prize of 7 Digis, yippee!  I coloured it with Copics, added some acrylic stars (from stash) then fussy cut and mounted it on an Action Wobble I got from Scrappy Go Lucky... actually I got my hubby to pick some up for me as it's 55kms from here and he was working in that area on the very day I "needed" one!  These things are way cool, and so easy to use.  Here's a picture of it wobbling... no mean feat and a two-person job one to wobble and one to click, lol
I've layered all the panels on blue card from my stash then popped the wobbler on top; The Paper Shelter has Lots of Layers as their challenge theme, lots of layers here, so I'm in!  The Secret Crafter has Animal Antics, teddy bears are animals so I'm in there too.
I stamped and embossed the sentiment and made it into a sort of banner using a square punch - I saw this idea on Debby's blog, thanks Debby :-) Divas by Design has Celebrate and Stamping With The Dragon has Birthdays so I'm entering those, and Pink Gem has "a Boy Thing" for their challenge, so there too.
 I used a sketch from Papertake Weekly this time, their challenge is to use ANY of their sketches this is #68, and isn't it yummy?   My papers are from Kaisercraft, Echo Park and stash; My Mums Craft Shop has 3 lots of 3 as their challenge, I've used three designer papers, three buttons (also from my stash) and three triangles so I'm in there, the Corrosive Challenge is Cute as a Button (cute image, tick, button, tick), so I'm in there and with all the stash I've used I'll be in Lisa's Waste Not Wednesday challenge too. 
By the Cute and Girly has For a Boy as their challenge and Simon Says ChallengePaper Crafting Journey and Catch the Bug all have Anything Goes challenges, so I'm entering those.  
I finished the inside of the card using the same sketch, scaled differently.  Well that's it for today's card, hope you can hop over to the Here Come The Boys blog and check out the rest of my teamies makes... everyone loves a Teddy Bear, so why not have a go at the challenge too?  There's the chance at those fabulous 7 Bugaboo images too, don't forget!
I'll be back in a day or so with the card I made for my Dad for Father's Day, until then Happy Crafting, Donna
