Birthday Bear

Hello Friends,

Today I am going to share with you a card that I made for my daughter's birthday and I am also going to be entering it in the 613 Avenue Crafts  ~  THE 2ND CHANCE CHALLENGE: The Beat Goes On! on their facebook page.  The challenge is to create a card using this photo for inspiration:

And here is my card that I made:
For this 5 x 7 inch card I started with yellow cardstock for the base of the card.  Then I cut out the Buggy Designs Button Bear in chocolate brown paper and inked the edges with black ink.  I used a sizzix die to cut out the sign in blue paper and I cut out the happy birthday using a Quickutz die and some sparkly yellow paper.  Next I used the Build a Cupcake die to make the cupcake and a Cottage Cutz Napkin & Decorative Teaspoon die to make the spoon and napkin.  I also used the small balloon in the Quickutz Nesting Balloons and the string was from Frantic Stamper Helium Balloons die.  I also used a die to make the tablecloth, but the maker of that die escapes my brain at the moment and I no longer have the packaging.  So what do you think??  Did I meet the challenge??  I took the colors from the picture to make my card!
I hope I have inspired you to create something fun today!
Thanks for stopping by!
