Blue Nose Bear Birthday

Hello again everybody,

I have created a birthday card this time, as I have decided I actually need to make more birthday cards this year lol.

So here is my first birthday card of the year:
I went for a blue base card as everybody knows this little guy and his friends all have blue noses :) Plus blue felt perfect for the way I am feeling after falling down the stairs - not just once but twice in one week! Massive bruise on my backside, but I will spare you the picture :D

The teddy is a foiled peel-off, which was adhered inside a die-cut frame (using scalloped and plain oval dies. I used papermania glitter markers to add some sparkle to the frame. The ribbon was from my stash and over this I added a parchment butterfly, created using the free stencil from Papercraft Essentials 81, and the new parchment tools my mum got me for Christmas. I coloured the butterfly with papermania watercolour brush markers. Finally I added the sentiment, layering part of it onto the ribbon. This card used the sketch from catch the bug SSS#401

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
SOS #233 Colour me monochromatic
winter wonderland Spring is in the air
abc-challenge Y-Your Choice
OLL #195 Girlie
artistic inspirations #147 Winter Blues
Quirky crafts #1 Let's quirky celebrate

This card also fits the theme for my Monthly Themes for Crafting facebook group - three different materials used (any craft counts). It would be great to see some of you joining in also!

And here is an update for my fish tank cross stitch - just over 116 hours

Thank you for looking
