Birthday Bear

Hi guys, hope you are all keeping well. Im super excited :D Ok now i wasnt excited at all about our new TKMaxx store opening tomorrow, until someone on the DC forum said they brought some super-de-super scrapbooking kits from their branch for just £1 & £2!!! now i cant wait and i am going into town especially to see if my new store had any bargains, it better do i dont really like going into town so twice in 1 week is really pushing it.

Anyway onto my card, isnt this bear so cute

He is the progressive challenge freebie digi for this week at Delightful Inspirations . I coloured him with pro markers and then cut round a template i have made for the nice frame shape. I decided he should be looking up at something, so printed off a teeny flutterby for cutie bear to gaze at, also coloured with pro markers. The backing paper was for a pack i got from Pondskipper Crafts and i think the maker is The English Paper Company, but as i have lost the packaging i cant double check. The sentiment, i made using first a Happy Birthday 99p stamp from Hobbycraft and then i used my tiny £shop alphabet stamps to do the other words, again cutting round a template for the shaped frame.
I have a pot of metal charms that just seems to keep getting bigger and bigger as i alsways seem to forget to use them on my cards, but this time i remembered and attatched a cute little silver metal flutterby with thin peach ribbon, and made a matching bow for the top of the sentiment frame. Woops i almost forgot to mention i used part of a little doiley under the sentiment too :D

hope you like it
