This huggable bear comes from QKR Stampede and I found I had the perfect balloon birthday paper to complement it.  The little cake on the lower right corner is a brad, then I've added a strip of ribbon across the bottom, added a flower with leaves and a flourish, plus a couple doilies and this card is ready to be sent off for a special birthday (which I have 6 of them in June, so this will be used sooner, rather than later!).
