Happy Bearday!

Good morning!  I hope your weekend has gotten off to a good start; mine has.  I took some time to get crafty this morning; we also have family here from out of state and have a family graduation to attend, so it will be a fun day!

I have joined the Forever Friends Monthly Challenge Team.  Actually I am jumping in a bit late with this challenge, as it began Thursday.  I like playing along with the challenges because I get to include an animal on my cards!  Our challenge this month is "Birthday".

I chose this adorable FF bear to work with; I went with plain cardstock and vellum to keep the focus on the cute image.  The vellum actually has a nice texture, but it's hard to see in the photo.  I used my corner rounder to add a bit of interest, added a piece of faux ribbon (I used the MFT Grosgrain Texture Board Die-namics and just ran a strip of CS through my Cuttlebug...super easy, plus you can have "ribbon" in any width or color!), and some rhinestones.

Image: Forever Friends Digital Image
Ink: Printer
Paper: G.P. 110, SU! Pretty in Pink, Papertrey Ink Vellum
Embellies: Me & My Big Ideas Rhinestones
Extras: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper, MGT Grosgrain Texture Board Die-namics, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

The sketch I used for my card is from Alota Rubber Stamps and I am also entering my card in the following challenges:

Craft Punked: Happy Birthday
Ooh La La Creations: Make it Girly

Thanks for stopping by today; enjoy your weekend!

Super cute, Angela. Love your use of vellum, adds eye appeal without detracting from the adorable Birthday Bear.
