Papa Bears Card...

Oh just got it finished in time. Im usually so far ahead but have been doing other things this week so hadn't got round to my card for my Papa Bear.
I didn't know what sort of card to do so decided on this one.  Its also his birthday in a week and a half so need to have 2 different styles of cards. (Mind you havent a clue what to do for it either!!!)
 I got the image in a birthday card. (thanks xxx) Its so cute and just perfect for Fathers Day.
Dont know if the teddys fluff shows up to well in the picture, I wanted him to look cuddly so have made him a bit dotty. (ha just like my Dad!!!) I coloured him in with my greys and then used them again softly with wee dots, then used the blender pen over them so make them less obvious. I like the effect.
Well there are loads of Fathers Day and Special Male challenges so I have picked a few which I quite often join in with anyway.
