Birthday Hugs

I love the sketch for this fortnight's Sugar Bowl Challenge...really great for using up scraps of paper. I decided to make a boy's card...and used 'Dexter Bear' for the image. The papers are all Fancy Pants Design ('Papa')...and I doodled some faux-stithing around all of the edges...for the 'extra' element to the challenge. The sentiment is made up of two stamps - the 'Birthday' part is from the Woodware 'Circular Greetings' set, and the 'hugs' part is from the 'Hugs' set by Penny Black. As this is a boy's card, and there's already quite a lot going on with the patterned papers, I added only a simple star (cut using Nesties) for embellishment.
