Life's a summer picnic for bears

When I remembered this week's Pile it on challenge 29 'life is a picnic' I thought of a Teddy Bears picnic picture that I used on a card last year. And the challenge this week at Stamp n doodle is 'let's go on a picnic or BBQ'.

It's a very simple card, matted and layered on to a 7 x 5 cardblank. The sentiment was generated on my dymo letratag. I must have had the teddy buttons for ages, I can't remember where I got them from, but I thought they would sit nicely either end of the sentiment.

This is also for:

Pixie cottage 79: fun with food
Cardmakin mamas 25: food and drink
Aud sentiments 33: enjoy your day
Paper issues: life is sweet
Phindy's Friday 64: doubling up - two teddy buttons
Dream valley 11: summer theme
Pollycraft 102: summer fun
Fairytale 20: summer, sun, sunshine
ECP 43: summer
365 day 144: so random
Forever friends: not square
I did it 64: animals
Die cut dreams 94: animal antics
Creative card crew: animal antics
Digi doodle 68: clean & simple
