When Bears Go Camo

Let's celebrate those wonderful military personnel who serve our country. This cute little bear is a Dustin Pike Image (Doodle Dragon Studios. I wanted to make the bear different, so I printed him onto camo patterned paper and then paper pieced the heart with a white cardstock heart colored with a pastel yellow promarker. The army green star patterned paper was cut out using nestabilities. The textured paper behind the image is some old paper from my stash, that I am trying to get rid of. I've had it since I started card making and I don't like it, so I've kept putting off using it. Card layout was made by using the sketch at Doodle Dragon Studio's challenge blog.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
