Happy Birthday Stacy

Today is my sister Stacy's birthday. This is the birthday card I made for her using Beary Big Hugs from Belles N Whistles. I used the sketch from this week's challenge at The Sweet Stop. I decided to change the sketch a little by tilting the image and adding the sentiment to the bottom of the card instead of beside the image. The base of my card is sugar n spice (pink) backed in black. I added a block of pink and white stripped paper and a block of pink and white dotted paper both backed in black. I colored the image using crayola and prisma colore pencils. I backed the image in sugar n spice and then again in black. Then punched the edge of the black behind the image using an eyelet lace border punch. I added black pearls to the corners of the image. I added stickles to the shoes, bear's bow, hair bow and to the headband on the image. The sentiment is from Inkadinkado. I backed the sentiment in black and added a white heart pearl with a black pearl on either side. I added three white heart pearls to the upper corner of the card. To create the flower I layered four sheer pink fabric flowers and added crystal stickles to the edges and to the center and added a black pearl to the center. I am also entering this card into the following challenges: Crafty Sentiments: Glitter It Up Teddy Stampers: Me & My Teddy Birthday Sundaes: Photo Inspiration Craft Your Days Away: Spots & Stripes Catch The Bug: 4 or More Layers Ann's Creative Nook: Anything Goes Pile It On: Say It In Style Craft Your Passion: 2 x 2 Colour Create: Pink, Blac & White By The Cute & Girly: Cute & Girly Fresh Brewed: Flowers Supplies Used: Image: Belles N Whistles Beary Big Hugs Clear Rubber Stamp Sentiment: Inkadinkado Expressions Frame Clear Rubber Stamp Set Paper: White Cardstock, Black Cardstock, Coredinations Sugar n Spice Cardstock, Pink & White Stripped Paper, Pink & White Dotted Paper Embellishments: Queen & Company Black Pearls, Annabelle Stamps 6 mm White Heart Pearls, tickles Crystal Glitter, Pink Sheer Fabric Flowers Tools: EK Success 1 3/8" Circle Punch, Martha Stewart Eyelet Lace Border Punch Other: Crayola Colored Pencils, Prisma Colored Pencils
