Birthday Bear

Hello Peeps!

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  First off, I would like to welcome my new followers - so happy to have you along! 

Today I have a birthday card to share that I made for my son's second birthday:


My computer is currently broken :( so no photo editing today.  I had to borrow my husbands laptop to do this post.  I tried to include as many of my son's favorites on this card - so lots of buttons, the circular shape, the car and the corrugated paper.  I think he will really like it, at least for a short while before he starts trying to tear it apart. 



Supplies:

Papers/card: My Mind's Eye Alphabet Soup boy and Bazzill card
Stamp:  Lili of the Valley
Ink/colour: Stazon black, Distress vintage photo, frayed burlap, fired brick, tea dye, pine needles, antique linen and water colour pencils (yellow and orange)
Other: Fiskars paper crimper, My Mind's Eye Lush 2 orange buttons, American Crafts sparkly buttons, glossy accents, Songbird Cricut cartridge for the 2.

This card was inspired by the following challenges:

Lili of the Valley - button it
Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenge - for the wonderful sketch
Here Come the Boys - wheely nice
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - anything goes
Cute Card Thursday - animal crackers
Stampin' for the Weekend - what a cutie
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes with optional punch + a birthday blog hop!
and I am also linking this card up to the Lili of the Valley Ideas to Inspire World Card Making Day giveaway.

Thanks for stopping by!  Have a great week!

Hugs,

Dawn
