City Crafter - Around the Corner (and Empty Box Project #23)

This week's challenge at City Crafter is : Around the Corner (Create a card or  project and use just one corner and leave the rest of your card/project blank. )

 For my DT card I used a teddy bear stamp from my ' Empty Box Project'  Box. 
Just to recap:
On New Year's day I revealed my stamping shame - a big box of unused stamps - and started my Empty Box project. My aim is to work through the box , one stamp/ stamp set at a time and see if I can use them. If I can't use them, I will dispose of them. The aim is to finish with an empty box.

The teddy bear stamp is from a Craftwork Cards set that I won in a challenge. The sentiment is a well-used circular stamp from My Sentiments Exactly.

Our special Guest Star, Suchi  is still with us at City Crafter , I hope you will come and visit us, see her work and the work of the DT, and join in with your own 'around the corner' creation.
