Birthday Bear QKR


Firstly today, I want to wish you all, on this Good Friday, that the miracle of Easter brings you peace, renewed faith, and comfort during these challenging times.

Now why you are here -

 My card today is for the challenge at QKR. Our challenge is on the 1st and 15th of every month, so you have 2 chances every month to enter the challenge.

We will select two winners each of the weeks 
1 using QKR Stampede  or Eureka Stamps image
 and 1 using any image!

Anything Goes every 1st & 15th of the month
My choice of QKR image this challenge was for a birthday card. I had to use him, he  is just so cute and perfect with him holding the birthday cake. I print and cut him with the Silhouette, then coloured him with Distress inks, using two of them to colour the bear, matching the paper.

I have recently had a wonderful cut file and I decided to use it for this card, as I'm too lazy busy to measure the shapes. I cut each piece of card to make the diamond shape with the Silhouette. The paper is double sided, I reversed it for each piece. I then stamped the tiny greeting. The doily shape comes with the cut file and I coloured it to match the purple parcels with Distress ink. His eyes and nose were 3D glazed and the cake icing was sparkled with clear sparkle pen.

Distress Inks - Seedless Preserve, Victorian Velvet, Tea Dye
glaze - Nuvo Crystal Glaze
sparkle pen - Spectrum Noir
paper - Craft Sensations 
pink layer card - Crafters Companion 
stamp - Magazine freebie

Wow! What a fun birthday card Faith! You amaze me at what you can do with your machine and your digi's. I just love the fun shape of this card and of course that sweet little bear holding the birthday cake! I love how you made your bear look so "furry". Love the fun papers and of course the color combo. Super impressed, but shouldn't be because you always have the best cards! Hugs, Brenda
