Big Present!

Hi everyone, my card today uses one of the fun, and terribly cute, Forever Friends stamps that I purchased a while ago. I still have a few more of these that are patiently waiting to be used, LOL! Since I'm using a teddy image I'm entering this card for the Teddy Stampers blog challenge of creating a birthday card. It's my first time playing along there and they are celebrating there 1st birthday with lots of prizes to be won!

I coloured my image with copic markers and added the tiny Stampin' Up 'For You' greeting to the tag.......it only just fit which made me happy! I used my Nestabilities Label 17 dies to cut out my image and used a larger die to cut out the Stampin' Up Lavender Lace cardstock. My background features Designer Paper from Kaisercraft's Lilac Avenue 6 x 6 pad and I've used my trusty sewing machine to stitch around the edges. I stamped another SU birthday greeting on the top left of the card and layered this onto a piece of Lavender Lace cardstock. I also used a piece of Lavender grosgrain ribbon (unsure of the brand) and some SU certainly celery ribbon tied with a button and embroidery floss, then just all adhered to a white folded card.



Hope you like my card today, please let me know what you think! My brother is arriving today for a visit so I might be a bit scarce for the next week. I also have a follow up CT scan scheduled for next Monday, so keep your fingers crossed for me! If the result is good, the oncologists are talking about giving me a break from chemo, yeehaa......that will be MY big present!
