Fusion Card Challenge - 'Critter'

Welcome to the newest Fusion Card Challenge - 'Critter'! The amazing inspiration photo is a wonderful starting point. But that sketch is pretty great too! So, which will you try?
The lovely sketch and photo helped to create this bear-y special birthday card. I've created my own daisy bouquet background in shades of yellow/green/brown and layered the cute little bear on the pretty dotted circular frame. The birthday banner is the finishing touch!
The DT has provided some fabulous inspiration, so be sure to hop on over and join the party! 
When playing along you may use the sketch OR the photo as you jumping off point. OR, if you are feeling super duper clever, you can fuse 'em together.
