The Stamp Spot March challenge

The March challenge was make a card suitable for a child under 16.
Most of my cards are suitable for children or adults as I am mainly a cute stamper.
This card I have made for a cyber friend in Canada who is in the Bear Lovers stamping yahoo group where our cards have to have a bear somewhere.
I have embossed blue card with Stampin Up embossing folder, used Creative Memories Mini Hexagon maker to cut the hexagon's out of "Me to You with love" 6x6 paper pack which I received free with Simply Cards No 53.  Have stamped the La La Lands "Sweet Friends Marci" onto white card and coloured with Copics (hair, skin and boots), distress maker (bear) and Tria markers (the rest).  Have cut out Marci and attached her to the card.  Cut out the sentiment and attached with paw print brads.
