Big Buttons = Perfect Balloons

This Bear by Stampabilities (available HERE) just might be my favorite stamp. He/she was also one of the reason that I spent a jillion dollars on buttons & ribbon in the first place. Whatevah!! I am slowly getting over the trauma because WOW, is that not the PERFECT embellishment for this little sweety or what? I created this card using Sunday's challenge over on SCS where the challenge was to case a card from the gallery of Shannan Steubner (one of the Verve Divas).... HERE is the card I cased.
