Cute Card

The challenge at Papertake Weekly today is cute cards and sponsored by Stamp Fairy. I used their Lenny and Linda Wedding stamp for my card and embellished it with a sparkly button, stickles and liquid pearls from Ribbon Girl

I printed the bears as large as my regular square cards, coloured them and turned them into a shaped card, I like it
