Birthday Bear

Beccy from 'Beccy's Place' has recently started a  Monthly Challenge and her April Challenge theme is -All about Chocolate, create a paper craft project using chocolate coloured paper , trim and embellishments . You can use a bit of added colour if you want plus you must   use one of her images. I adore Beccy's digital stamps and she has been so generous in the past with her Freebies. This   little bear is called 'Birthday Bear' and is one of many I got from her site. Is he not adorable or what.  Not sure from his expression if he is in an 'Ooops  I got caught' moment, or  the bite he took caused him to go off into Chocolate heaven for a moment:O). I started with a sketch but veered off and now  I'm not sure whose sketch it was. Sorry! The cupcake in the corner was also a freebie from Beccy's.  She has now opened a digital stamp shop and is selling her new creations see here.
