Krafty Chicks challenge - GDT card Week 3

Good morning lovely friends; I hope you're having a great week so far.  I'm back with my third card for the Krafty Chicks challenge and week 3 is always CAS.  
I always love the look of clean and simple cards but it's not really my forte, although I am getting better at making them.  Here is my card:

and a close up of my cute image:

I began by stamping my adorable little bear and coloured him with Promarkers; I also added some white gel pen highlights.  I don't have the matching dies so fussy cut him out.  I cut a piece of white card 3 3/4" x 5" and masked off a strip towards the top and ink blended it with purple inks; I went for an ombre blend.  I then stamped some of the small cupcakes in black ink onto the ink blended strip.  I die cut the letters from white card and stacked them 4 high for some dimension using liquid glue.  I stamped the birthday sentiment below the ink blended panel towards the right hand side.  I arranged my letters and adhered them with liquid glue and the bear was added with thin foam squares.  I managed to contain myself and not add any more and I think it looks super cute.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Crafty Catz challenge - ATG option dies (my letters are die cut)
Mix it Up challenge - make your own background (mine is ink blended)
Seize the Birthday challenge - ATG (no toppings this time)
Cutie Pie challenge - birthdays and/or bears
The Sisterhood of Crafters challenge - ATG/die cuts (my letters are die cut)

Please pop over the Krafty Chicks challenge blog for all the details/rules and whilst you are there please leave some love for the design team - Leanne, Melanie, Diane and Lori.  I'll be back next Thursday with my fourth and final guest chick card - All Occasions.  

Thanks for stopping by and I appreciate all your lovely comments.
