Apologies everyone for being MIA lately, I have been making cards.....I just have so much else going on lately that I don't have much time for blogging!
I'd already made this card when I saw Andrea's (Andrea's Stampin' Moments) Simply Saturday challenge - to use scallops. I used a Martha Stewart scallop punch on my card. The birthday bear is a stamp by Stamp-It, I coloured him with my limited supply of Copic Markers. I'm not sure who makes the Design Paper, it was in my scrap pile with the name cut off, I added a row of chocolate coloured Kaisercraft pearls and some stitched ribbon. The cardstock is by Stampin' Up, I'm so disappointed that 'Close to Cocoa' is being discontinued, it's one of my favourite colours!
