Beary Big Hugs

I created this birthday card using Beary Big Hugs from Belles N Whistles. 

To create my card I began with a 5x5 purple palisades card base.  I cut a piece of spring breeze a 1/4 inch smaller than the base and backed it in white card stock.  I cut a piece of purple star vellum, backed it in purple palisades card stock and added a sage green ribbon. I added that to the bottom of the card and added a white paper doily.  I colored the image using Spectrum Noir and American Crafts Chromatix pens.  I backed the image in purple palisades and then again in white.  I added 4 mini purple rhinestones to the upper corner and 4 more to the opposite bottom corner. I layered white paper flower and a purple paper daisy. I fastened them together with a purple glitter brad and added them to the remaining bottom corner. 

To finish off the inside of my card I cut a piece of spring breeze a 1/4 inch smaller than the base and backed it in white.  I cut a smaller square out of purple star vellum, backed it in purple palisades and then again in white and added it to center.  I cut a piece of white card stock, backe it in purple pasisades and then again in white and added to one side of the card. I stamped the sentiment "happy birthday" onto white card stock and backed it in spring breeze and added it to the top of the vellum square.
