Birthday Blues...

Give me odorous at sunrise a garden of beautiful flowers where I can walk undisturbed. ~Walt Whitman Happy Tuesday! :) Today is the day fr a new Anita Be Stampin Challenge! This week is a color challenge. I love the colors Anita chose. So pretty in shades of Blue and Brown.

I grabbed my new
Bears and Bunches for this card...what? You don't see any Bears? :) Well, that is because I totally messed up coloring the bear. LOL :) But I LOVE the flowers the little boy bear is holding...so I decided that is really all I needed for this card! Plus with a simple Happy Birthday sentiment from Rosie's Sweets it worked great for this week's Fall to Layout! :D

Every time I make an
Anita Be Stampin card and I pull out my Polka Dot Cuttlebug folders I laugh...Anita is DYING for these folders and I figure the more I use them the more likely she is to go buy them! BWAHAHAHAHA, Enable much?

I didn't have the right color brown ribbon for this, so I colored some white silk ribbon with a Copic marker. It matches great now! I made a double bow by arranging the ribbon and tying a button around the middle...is that how you are supposed to make these? Or did I cheat?

I did add a bear to the inside...because seriously...these bears are SO CUTE!!!!
