Balloon extravaganza

This background paper was so adorable, I didn't want to cover up TOO much of it, so kept my design and embellishments simple.  The sweet bear comes from Dare2bArtzy, and you can also get the die cut, which makes for much easier cutting around the image.  I've added a party hat to him, the "celebrate" is a die cut, the cupcake is a sticker that I foam-mounted, the doilies layered behind my bear, and the sentiment attached on a punched out scallop frame.  And, there you have it.
I have entered the following challenges:

Creative Craft Cottage - most wonderful time of year (BIRTHDAY)
Creative Knockouts - birthday
Cute Card Thursday - AG
Dare2bArtzy - birthday
Send a Smile 4 Kids - AG 4 kids
