Girly Birthday Bear

Hello fellow crafters,
Here in Australia, as in many parts of the Northern Hemisphere, we are experiencing bizarre extremes of Mother Nature. In Victoria and very southern parts of New South Wales there are still huge, out of control bushfires, while Queensland and the east coast of NSW to Sydney are experiencing a hurricane and record-breaking floods. Ten days ago, we had the highest recorded temperatures here and were semi-packed and on fire alert, but now we have had record-breaking, torrential rain for 36 hours, with flooding.

My heart goes out to those poor souls who have lost their homes, and in some cases their lives, to either fires or floods.

Onto happier subjects, this is my second post today, because I have made two cards 
for the new challenge at Penny's Paper Crafty, and this week our theme is
Our sponsors for this challenge are
For this card, I have used this oh so cute digital stamp, Digi 9603 Birthday Bear, 
by our new sponsor, QKR Stampede.
A closer look at this adorable little girly bear.
I have decorated the inside of the card to match the front.
For a change, I decided to make a 'Tent Fold' card.
