Happy Birthday bro

Hi All,

Busy and hectic as usual in my world! Found time to make a card for my bro at the weekend though.






And here's a close up of the colouring, done with copics - am getting braver about leaving bits paler!


Image is stamped using memento ink, tuxedo black on elzybells smooth white paper.
Stamp is elzybells, coloured with copics.
Sentiment is from penny black and stamped with memento bahama blue.
Image is cut out using my ever lovely cuttlebug and sizzix nestabilities dies.
Card is from stash, backing paper is from echo park sweet summertime set.
Ribbon and buttons are from stash.

It also works for these challenges:
Raise the bar - I used their sketch
Charisma Cardz - Die cuts
Teddy Stampers - Teddy Bear's Picnic
Cupcake Craft - Blue and Green
C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Photo inspiration
Papertake Weekly - 3,2,1 Recipe (I used 3 layers, 2 buttons (or 2 bears!), 1 ribbon (or 1 cupcake!))
A crafty little place - Food theme
The play date cafe - Green, Blue, Pale Green Colours
Aud Sentiments - Anything Goes
Stampin for the Weekend - Anything Goes

Hope you like it! xxx

Good for you for experimenting and getting to know the use of the Copics. I have yet to do this and am incredibly intimidated. This is the cutest card! Those two bears are just too sweet!
