I used the scraps from the layout I made early today (you can see it HERE), to make a super cute birthday card. I wanted to play along with this week's Paper Smooches "Sparks" challenge:
I used the landscape sketch, with the Chubby Chum Pals and Sentiment Sampler stamp sets. I used several techniques on the bear image stamps - paper piecing, reverse stamping, and masking - to make the pair embracing each other:
I loved adding the party hat and cupcake stickers from the Doodlebug "Celebrations" line to the bears. For the sentiment, I combined the "happy birthday" from Sentiment Sampler (masking off the 'happy' part) with the "bear hugs" from Chubby Chum Pals. The green mat is popped up:
Thanks so much for stopping by! I'm off to do some grocery shopping, then my husband's softball game this evening.. maybe even some late night crafting. I love summer time!
