Yet More Birthdays

Hi Everyone,

It is Inspiration time again over at the STAMPlorations Blog. Today I'm sharing a belated birthday card. I made it for Rosa who celebrated her 3rd birthday last week, and we shall be seeing her soon during a family visit in Devon. We'll be driving there tomorrow, and I thought it nice to give her the card with a little present in person.

It is a pretty straight forward card to make. Stamp the 'Birthday Girl' sentiment from the Party Time set in crisp cantaloupe down onw side of your base card, add the Texturized Big Numbers Background in pistachio pudding, stamp the 'Happy belated birthday' sentiment also from the Party Time set in black on a matching piece of card, layer this on a piece of vellum and attach to your base card. Tie a piece of twine into a bow, colour and fuzzy cut the little bear from the Heaven Sent set, add some doodles using white and sparkly gel pens, attach to your card, round some corners and add a few embellies to finish.

TIP!: Little treasures for great embellishments can be found anywhere. The little stars I used were part of a nail decorating kit I bought in the pound shop.

Here is one last look at my card:

I would like to enter this little birthday teddy at:
