Beary Happy Birthday

It's my Aunt's birthday today - she's a ripe and lively 81 years young (honestly, we have days out shopping and I have to have a lie down when we get home - she gets in and starts doing the garden!!)  I knew I wanted to use this bear image as she loves teddies but I needed some inspiration for the layout and thankfully this week's annabelle sketch challenge came to the rescue.

 The sketch challenge can be found here  http://annabellestamps.blogspot.co.uk/2012/03/absc048.html

The image is from fizzy moon and is coloured with copics with the addition of glitter.  I cut it with a nestie and mounted onto another scalloped nestie and added a gem to the centre of each scallop.  I cut a decorative strip using nestie edgeabilities and added a large gem to the center of each decorative element and then used the die to edge with a narrow pen.  The sentiments are from 3 retired elzybells sets.   It's quite a bit "pinker" than my normal cards, but I think it's quite cute.

It would also be a great card to enter into our charity cards challenge which this month is all about bling and we have a £50 prize package up for grabs. http://stlukescharitycardschallenge.blogspot.com/
