Have a Beary Special Birthday

Hi Everyone,

Happy Friday! Have you had a nice week? We've had some lovely and truly spring-like days here in Helsinki, but today it's gloomy and raining... oh well... it'll get better! :o)

My little daughter and I are going to a first birthday party tomorrow (yay, Amelia's first party in Helsinki!), and so I made a quick card for the birthday boy. I truly adore those MFT bears, I think they're fantastic for cards for kids, and so I had to use one of them on this card. 

The background was done on the canvas paper from Lidl I mentioned not so long ago (yep, once I re-discover a tool/supply, I often use it a few times before putting it away again), with the use of Distress Inks and some water mixed with Perfect Pearls - pity you can't see all the sparkle in the photos! There's also a lot of Wink of Stella on the coloured image, of course!

I kept the card pretty simple, but I love all the dimension on it, and the sparkle. And I think the bright colours are very fitting for a child. I hope little Daniel and his parents like it! The colours were influenced by the current challenge over at Seven Hills Crafts (see inspiration photos below). 

I am entering the card into the following challenges:

  1. What a fabulous background - I really love the texture of the canvas and the intense blues and greens! The bears from MFT Beary Special Birthday are totally adorable and this one with the balloons is my fave! The hint of shimmer lifts the imagery perfectly. The contrast provided by the black banner bunting and glitter letters is just the right touch. Super job! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Seven Hills Crafts :)
