Happy Anniversary bear

A very good evening to all my friends and followers today.
I hope you are having a lovely week. I have had a quiet one, just pottering through the holidays which I always love. I'm really looking forward to Saturday though as I'm off to London to see the Phantom of the Opera with my daughter, her friend and my sister.  A really girly day full of laughs, just what I need right now!
It is our anniversary this week and I couldn't decide what sort of card to make for hubby, so I decided to follow a few challenges and see if that would help. While rummaging through my images I found this fab bear which I'd won in a challenge not so long ago. I thought he'd be perfect to use as a starting point.
I liked the sketch at Tuesday Morning Sketches and also the colours to follow at Colour Throwdown.
I coloured the image with Promarkers and layered him with some First Edition papers from the Animal Antics pack.  I used some Nellie Snellen dies to cut out the circles and the sentiment is from Nettys Cards:

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
