PBSC November - Thank You

It's the first Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for a new Penny Black Saturday Challenge...the theme this month is:

'Thank You'

As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

I decided to combine my 'Birthday Bears' stamp set with 'Bear Blank 1' (a lucky charity shop find, as he's the only one of the original bear blanks missing from the recent clear stamp set). I coloured the bears using watercolour pencils, then added the letting using a set of alphabet stamps by Clear Stamps. For the background, I used a strip of stripey paper from the 'Vintage Charm' pad by My Mind's Eye...adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. I carefully cut the bears out, and added them to my card mounted on 3D foam pads.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
