Happy Birthday Sweetie!

Today is my husband's birthday, so I made a special card for him.

For some reason this bear just kind of reminds me of him. I wanted the bear to be holding a Happy Birthday banner, I tried it several ways none of which really did what I wanted but this one got close. I used the cake from the Viola set for him to balance on his head because this bear is just talented that way! All products from Stampin' Up!

Stamp sets: Under the Stars, Viola, A Little Birthday Cheer

Paper: Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Washington Apple DSP, watercolor paper

Ink: Basic Brown, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Bashful Blue, Summer Sun, Creamy Caramel, Close to Cocoa

Accessories: Aquapainter, Crystal Effects, Dazzling Diamonds Glitter, Sponges, ticket corner punch, Bashful blue striped grosgrain, Circle designer brad

Tonight we are going out to dinner followed by his favorite cake, Red Velvet, from the Red Oven Bakery.
