Another Forever Friends challenge card

I'm getting hooked to these little fellas and am loving all the challenges over on the Forever Friends Challenge blog I must admit, the theme this week of Oriental was a little bit of a struggle for me. It's not that i don't love oriental because i do! But trying to fit a bear into it was the difficult bit. In the end i decided to use the Far East paper pack by DCWV to stamp the present on that the bear is holding. In total i stamped the bear 4 times to get it how i wanted. I've used an oriental stamp for the background with some shiny red card for matting. Finished off with black ribbon and an oriental coin thing (sorry don't know what they're called) with some red cord. I hope you like it.
