Beary Birthday? or Miss you Beary Much?

I am a part of my favorite yahoo card group's Sketch Team and this is the first card I made for the sketch challenge.
Here's the sketch:And here's the card I made:


I used an older image that I had colored last fall from my previous design team (SSDS). I used my Studio G glitter glue (similar to Stickles) to color the bear's clothes. I inked the edges of the rectangle with blue cat's eye chalk ink. Next, I ran a 2.5 by 3 inch piece of pink cardstock thru my cuttlebug using the Bubbles embossing folder. I then took my blue cat's eye chalk ink pad and pounced on the raised bubbles to make them show up better. The striped and light blue papers were from a DCWV stack (but don't remember which one) and the bracket is a sticker from the Basic Grey Sultry collection pack. The ribbon was from Oriental Trading company (got lots of it). The daisy flowers are by Prima: Chloe and the silver things are something I picked up at the crop I went to on Saturday and glued in with glossy accents. The only thing I did not do is a sentiment...is the bear a good birthday card?, missing you card?, what?

Edited to add: I think I came up with the perfect sentiment..."Thank you, Thank you Beary Much" (sort of like Elvis Presley's Thank you but with a 'bear' twist)

I'm entering this into a couple of challenges...
