Happy Birthday Bear

Time for another Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch challenge! One of the things I really like about these weekly challenges is how simple or complex you want your card to be. With the time I had, today I chose simple.

Since we have yet another birthday to celebrate in the month of July, I thought I would use this sketch to direct me towards what I wanted the card to look like.

Here is the sketch...


And here is my take on it...


I think it's cute, but I'm not head over heels crazy about it like I sometimes am when I make a card. I feel I could have probably tweaked it more to make it better, but for a 2-year old little boy this card will be perfect!

All products listed are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
Paper:
Whisper White, Real Red, Only Orange, Tempting Turquoise

Stamp Sets: Cute & Cuddly, Party Hearty, On Your Birthday (sentiment)

I love it. I love the hat on the bear. I make my first order for SU next week. So excited but so overwhelmed at the same time. What to order first!?
