A bit of an elegant card

This is possibly my favourite card I've ever made. It was sent to a friend for her birthday at the weekend. I just love this image, it was sent to me as a RAK by my lovely friend Debbie. I am pretty certain it's a Sugar Nellie image, she is just adorable as is the lil bear. Oops she's not, She's from Belles & Whistles, sorry ;-)
