Have a Beary Good Birthday

Hello friends.  Just a quick post today with a fun little card I made for my little brother's birthday tomorrow using MFT's Polar Pals set. 

I admit that I have fallen head over heels in LOVE with the facial expressions on ALL the bears in the Polar Pals set...they just crack me up and I think my brother will get a kick out of them too!  I embossed the bear in black and then lightly outlined him with a C1 Copic, and colored in his scarf with a B95 and YG05 Copics.  After fussy cutting him out I pop dotted him to a blended background using Picked Raspberry, Dusty Concord, Salty Ocean, & Faded Jeans distress inks (yes, I'm kinda hooked on this color combo for backgrounds!).  I also embossed in black the mountains from PTI's Warmest Wishes stamp set before pop dotting my polar bear image.  The sentiment from the Polar Pals set was stamped on a banner from PTI's Tag Sale: Quilted Set.  I know this card is going to my brother, but I just couldn't help myself adding the sequins...hopefully he won't notice!!  :0)

That's it, that's all folks for this week!  Hope you all have a wonderful weekend!  We have our first family Christmas get together and they're predicting lots more snow...sure hoping they're a little bit wrong so traveling's not an issue!!  I love getting together with my mom's side of the family...I have GREAT cousins that I really enjoy getting a chance to get caught up with!  Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!



  1. Marcia, I love everything on this card...your background is fabulous, the trees behind the bear and of course that cute bear...! Awesome birthday card for the winter months! Have a great weekend!! We did get snow and the kiddos had a snow day!

  2. What a cute, cute card! The background is fabulous and I can see why you like using it so much. Those bears are so darling too. The sequins are perfect, no matter if it is a masculine card. They look like snow!! Have fun at your family gathering this weekend!!

  3. Love your darling polar bear. And, your background is inspired. Love how you put those mountains behind your bear.
