Bear in a Chair

I've always fancied the Papermania, Wellington Bear stamps, but never bought them as a couple of my friends have them and I'm welcome to borrow them, but, when I saw them half price at my local craft shop, I just couldn't resist.  It would have been rude not to!
 I've coloured the image with my usual Promarkers, then fussy cut it out, leaving a narrow border.
The papers are from the Papermania Wellington range too, as is the sentiment, I just added in some dark blue, pearl cardstock for a bit of contrast.  I used a Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page set to make the fancy mat, and a Woodware punch to make the buttons.  Some knotted twill ribbon finishes my card off.
