Bear Birthday Boy

Hey, here's another creation of mine, this time for Ozzy in our family, he will be 2 this year :)

I started by stamping wooden Forever Friends image and colouring it with promarkers. I then cut and embossed it using Xcut nesting dies.

I chose my backing paper and papers to match and cut two to back the image on a slant. I used a third paper in the bottom righthand corner.

I used blue ribbon down the lefthand side of the card and attatched two cardboard buttons tied with blue string. I used a 'Birthday Boy' sentiment by Hunkydory crafts which I raised in the bottom right corner. I then cut out a number two and embossed it using two different cosmic shimmer embossing powders. To finish, I added pale blue stones to the sentiment and corners of the image.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges: -
