A Birthday Card

Here is another card I made for the challenges this week at Catch The Bug. This one is for the challenge that was posted on Monday (blue & white). The image I used is called boy bear. I colored him using crayola colored pencils. The sketch that I used is from the challenge at Inspirational Card Sketches. I made the rectangle at the bottom of the sketch a little bigger for the image and then flipped the sketch. The base of my card is Navy blue. For the two blocks at the top I added a light blue plaid patterned paper and the other is a piece of white cardstock with faux stitching using a blue pen. I did the same around the sentiment. The strip at the bottom is medium blue embossed using a cuttlebug embossing folder (dots). I finished the card by adding blue pearls to the upper right corner.
