Beary Red card

I need to finish a few more cards this weekend before I send them out on Monday to complete my Valentine mailing.
This one is simple and the inside will allow me to write more than just a simple hello but more to the recipient.

The teddy is a digi or image I got from a swap so I am not sure what the company is.
The base paper is textured Colorbok card stock that I just picked up in Wal-Mart last night for 5.00 for 40 count of 12 x 12! The pattern paper is from Provo Craft, the front border punch is from Martha Stewart that was a left over on my desk! Yahoo using my scraps!
The circle scallop punches are from EK Success. I punched dots in them scallops as one of my challenges did not allow embellishments! Hmmm so I had to spruce it up some how.
The inside is a left over piece from the front and use the SU scallop border punch as well.

I am entering this card in the following challenges
Create 4 Fun - I used the sketch
CRAFTS AND ME - Red as the focal point
Crafty Catz #68 Tartan or Plaid
Prairie Fairy Friday - valentine
Crazy4Challenges - make a Valentine Card
Charisma Cardz - no embellishments - border punches were allowed!

The bear is "Button Bear" from Stampin' Up!. He was in the first SU! set I ever bought about 15 years ago!
You've made a cute card with him.
