Don't you just love how colorful, happy, and FUN this mood board looks?! How could you not resist playing along?!! And since I need to replenish my birthday card stash, this challenge came at just the right time!!
When my sweet friend Loll was clearing out some of her older stamps last year, she shared a few with me including this adorable Penny Black image called Bear-y Wishful. Here's what I made with it...
Isn't he a cutie?! I colored him up with my Copics (W1, W2, & W4) and then die cut him out. I also colored the candles included in the set with some colorful Copics and added Glossy Accents to the flames. (When I stamped and colored the bear image, I also stamped a 2nd image and fussy cut just the arm so I could pop it up for some dimension where he's holding the one candle to blow it out.)
I also used a favorite die of mine right now from The Greetery called Ribbon Maker: Pinked Stars Die and centered that onto my top folding card base. I used the same color Copics that I had used on the candles to color the punched out stars before gluing them back into their spots...love how it added some more color to this fun and whimsical card!
A little hard to see, but I did add some WOS to the colored stars and candles to add a little bit of sparkle to my card, and then finished with the sentiment that's included in the set and a piece of black & white baker's twine. Pretty simple card, but I think that CUTE little bear steals the show and will definitely bring a smile to someone's face!!
Lots of FABULOUS inspiration from the DT, so if you need to work on your birthday card stash, hop on over right HERE and play along! And wish the Double D a very HAPPY, HAPPY 7th BIRTHDAY while you're there! I sure do!!! :0)

Oh-my-gosh! This is way too stinkin' cute and fun and festive! Love the darling bear with his candles, and the way you colored the stars really brings it all together. Everything perfectly coordinated. Clean, but plenty of fun going on. You're a master! I'm glad you were able to play with us at Double D!
What a cutie! He's so fun, and his party is sure to be a hit
I think those PB bears are so cute and you really brought him to life with your wonderful coloring, Marcia. I love the 'extra' arm so he could hold the candle. So clever. I just finished a bunch of cards that could have used that fun starry ribbon.
