Our sketch challenge this week (SC550) is to choose from several past sketches. I chose SC501 but am using the sketch fairly loosely. The 3 circle elements are my bear, the balloons and the little present.
For the background (done on the card front): gold embossed the stars, sponged the 3 inks, , spritzed with shimmer mist.
Created a frame with rectangle dies, die cut the bears, balloons, etc., stamped and the colored with copics (used a colorless blender to soften the shadows on the bear). Die cut the sentiment flag, stamped sentiment, and assembled all with dimensional tape to create the shadow box effect. Added stickles to the balloons, present, and party hat. Sparkly and fun!

This is so cute. LOVE your sweet bear all ready for a birthday party! Love the addition of the sparkle on the balloons and present. But it's that gorgeous background that really catches the eye. Fabulous colours, and I love the shimmer and shine from the gold embossed stars. AWESOME! xx
