Under the Stars Birthday Card for Dad

Today is Dad's Birthday! Happy Birthday, Dad! OK...he doesn't even read this blog, but I felt like saying that. :-)
I hope you like this card. This bear is so adorable. I can't wait to make many, many other cards using this bear. I have so many ideas for him running around in my head...the possibilities are endless.
This card uses retired colors - in fact they are the In Colors from last year. BUT - you can use ANY colors you want, and the card will still look very similar. I just wanted to use something with blue and green, b/c Dad likes those colors.
Supplies (All Stampin Up!):
Stamp Sets: Under the Stars, Crab and Company (retired) (just for the little gifts and the little hat), Best Yet (retired 2008 Hostess Set)
Paper: Whisper White, Wild Wasabi (retired), Brilliant Blue, and Jersey Shore DSP (retired)
Ribbon: Wild Wasabi DS (retired)
Ink: Black Stazon, Wild Wasabi (the star), Close to Cocoa (to watercolor the bear), Stampin Write Markers in Brilliant Blue, Only Orange, and Certainly Celery, White Gel Pen (the polka dots on the hat and the gifts).
Other: Aqua Painter, Adhesive, Dimensionals, Scallop Circle Punch, 1 1/4" Circle Punch, 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Glue Pen (to stick on the hat)
