Birthday Bear

I really enjoyed making this card, it's so bright and cheery. I entering it into four challenges
ABCchallenge B is for blue
Creativecardcrew Sparkle and shine
Sketchandstash #42 Follow the sketch and use something new or something not used for a long time. I used this Penny Black stamp that I can't remember the last time I used it!
Ourdailybread #25 Stamp it and stamp it again. I stamped the image three times and cut two of them up to be able to decoupage them.
