Happy 50th Birthday

Today's card is for a lovely lady who is one of the few fellow crafters who've I've actually met a couple of times, albeit briefly.  She has a special birthday today (49 + 1) and I've made this creation using one of my new Happy Bear images, painted in DI reinkers.  The balloon was covered in Wink of Stella for some sparkle, and the panels are all stitched.

The little banner was created with some tag dies, strung together with some natural twine, and I typed both sentiments.

I've used a hint of green on the accents, and although it's not my favourite colour, I think it goes well with the apricot orange, and brings out the colours in the image.

And that's about it for today.  I'll be back on Sunday with another Happy Bear, and all I'll say is that he's not on card!

I don't often use green or apricot but the combination is gorgeous here; the colours really pop!
Fabulous design - I'm a huge fan of these new happy bears but have so far resisted far!

Big hugs, Kat xx
