Jan, 11 Birthday Challenge

Wow the days in this month are already flying by January 11 already, I hope the start of 2012 has been awesome for you. Glad to see that you have popped back to check out my blog this week.

The challenge theme this week with Whimsy is birthday. So I used the cutest little bear image by Stamp Art Designs from Whimsy Stamps called Teddy's Surprise Package. This stamp is very versatile, I used it to make Christmas cards and now am using it to make a birthday card. I love when you can do that with images. I drew out some balloons and colored them with copic markers to help add to the theme of birthday. I'd love to see you make a creation and play along with us at the Whimsy Inspiration blog, I hope your up for the challenge.Here is a picture of my card that kind of will show you some of the dimension that I used. It is really hard to get a photo that shows it off really well. I cut out the center of my card with a spellbinder then foam squared the background paper on. The bear is then foam squared to the background. The balloons are foam squared as well just not as high as the bear.

Supplies: Teddy's surprise Package image from Whimsy stamps, copic markers, Spellbinder Labels seventeen, Happy Birthday stamp from hero arts, Patterned paper from kaiser Craft and Fancy pants, Bazzill cardstock and ribbon.
