Happy Birthday Bear

It's Saturday!!  That means it's time for another challenge from Di's Digi Designs.
The challenge this time is: Make it Masculine
And here is my card for your inspiration:
Isn't this little guys super sweet!!??  I picked some fun papers (most of which are scraps) and bright embellishments to create a masculine birthday card that I think could work for a guy of any age.  The little bit of orange ribbon was in my bits and pieces stash; it was the perfect size for adding this fun little tab.

I hope you will get a chance to play along with us; I can't wait to see what you create.  And make sure you hop over to the Di's Digital Designs blog to see what the rest of the team has made for this challenge.

Stams: Di's Digi Stamps "Party Boy Bear" digi; PTI "Heart 2 Heart #1" sentiment
Dies: Spellbinders "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangles both for the image and sentiment

Cutie Pie Challenge #135-- bingo (I used the diagonal: buttons, punches/dies, and gems/pearls/enamel dots.  I also used ribbon/twine, stripes and I have spots on one of the little gifts, but I don't know if that counts)
