Teddy Bear Birthday

I created this birthday card using this adorable teddy bear digital stamp that my sister Stacy drew. Her online store, The Crafting Boutique, will be opening on April 1st. She will be selling digital stamps, handmade beaded stick pins and handmade paper roses.

I colored the image using crayola and prisma colored pencils. The base of my card is lavender rosebuds patterned paper from Paper Pizzazz. I added three strips of cardstock behind my image, lavender, blue and green. I punched the bottom of the green strip using an eyelet lace border punch. I backed the image in lavender. I layered a green, purple and white paper flower on top of each other and added a blue pearl to the center. The sentiment that I added to my card actually hangs from the flower. I added a blue pearl to the corner of the sentiment and then three more to the bottom corner.
