Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Get Sparkly (Bonfore Night)

Happy November everyone!! Here is my card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme is Get Sparkly what with Bonfire Night in a few days! I decided to use this teddy image as he is usually holding a rose but I thought I'd give him a sparkler instead! The sentiment is made using Doodlebug stamps and I've hand stitched all the fireworks and around the card too. The stars are from a Quickutz die and then ran through my Swiss Dots embossing folder to give them a bit of texture.
You can now see why this card was destined to be sent out to someone, I hope it gives the recipient a nice surprise on Bonfire Night!!
I'll be back tonight to announce the winners.
Love Becky xx
