Oh, HAPPY day!

Hello crafty friends! I'm so happy to be back in my craft room today to share this card with you! The kids are back in school woo hoo!! I do start back to work next week and I am so looking forward to getting back on schedule. This summer has been BUSY! I have decided to finish projects that I have started and go through and use my stuff instead of buying more, (well at least I am trying to curb my spending,haha) To get things going, here is the first thing I made....

I colored up these cutie pie bears with Copics a while back from Gerda Steiner Designs and wanted to get them on a birthday card to start replenishing my stash. I used distress inks to color in the scalloped circle. This paper is from DCWV paper stack and I think I've had it for over 10 years LOL! 

The dies are from My favorite Things and Gina Marie Designs. I spashed some pink sequins from my stash to help make things sparkle. The sentiments are from My Craft Spot stamps which closed down a while back. 

I border punched the inside pink layer and used the Mama Elephant pop up dies to add my second bear. This added the right amount of cuteness as you open up the card. 

Thanks so much for hoppin by! I hope you have a blessed day!
