Trying to come up with some b-day cards for the BRAK group. I used plain white CS for my base stamped with glorious green and yo-yo yellow with the dot and circle from the Riveting stamp set, then layered a torn piece of glorious green CS on the top. I really wanted to use some vellum paper I purchased from a "Lot on Ebay" that I believe is retired SU--anyway . . . has circles to match in pale shades of green, blue, and yellow. Placed this over the glorious green to make the colors stand out a little --but should have used vellum tape snail (didn't have)--as you can see my tape shows through. I colored my FAV teddy bear stamp with wartercolor pencils and used a blender pen--see his cute party hat in his hand?--he's way too cool to wear it on his head--but . . . he's thinking about it! Placed him on a piece of barely banana CS to set him off a bit, then pop dots to bring him 3D off the page. Then adapted my own little buckle of sorts for the Riveting stamp that says Enjoy your day attached with some gable green CS and light green ribbon--not SU. I thought the eyelets (from my Crop-A-Dile) really set it off at the bottom as well.
Hope y'all enjoy it!!

I love all the elements here! That bear is a fav - reminds me of my grandma who used to sew teddy bears - and he looks so cute on that ribbon! Great buy on the vellum - I like how you used it here and complemented it with the white base!
