Ready - Teddy - Go Challenge - Challenge #8 - 'It's a Wrap'

Hi Everybody,

How are you today???  I am fine, well I've actually gone to my Stroke Meeting this morning (this is scheduled so hopefully, it will appear), I wonder what we're do there today, and I wonder who'll be there today.

Well, it's the 1st of the month, gosh isn't the year going fast already, and that means there's another Challenge to Ready-Teddy-Go.

Before I go into details on the new Challenge, I have to thank all of you for working so hard to put your entries in to last months Challenge, they were all totally gorgeous.  I really hope the Winner (picked at Random) enjoys  the prize, please check the Ready-Teddy-Go blog to see if it was you.

Lets get back to this months Challenge, it's called "It's a Wrap".  Now it sounds like a Hollywood film set doesn't it but not this time ... this is a challenge which is inspired by packaging.  Marketing companies worldwide are paid a small fortune to come up with striking and alluring packaging to make us part with our hard earned cash.  Colour schemes and eye catching logos aren't just thrown together so . . . I would like to challenge folk to take their favourite product colour scheme and use it to make a card.  As long as the Image is a Teddy Bear.

It's time to see what I came up with for "It's a Wrap", and here it is:

This is based around the packaging of Diet Pepsi, I thought I'd do this as I drink it nearly everyday!!!
