Birthday bear

This is my card for two challenges - Passion for ProMarkers, the theme was 'coffee and cream'. I have used a range of brown and cream colours for the card. The other challenge is I Love ProMarkers, the theme was 'paper piecing', so I used this technique for the bear's top.

I began by stamping the Penny Black bear and mouse image with a black Memento ink pad. I coloured in the images with ProMarkers. I stamped the bear's top again on light blue card. I cut this out and added it to the coloured image. I mounted the image on square of cream card.

I covered a card black with brown patterned paper from Trimcraft Sugar and Spice range. I used my Cricut to cut out the greeting and the number. I using my Stampin' Up photo corners punch to punch the corners from brown card.

I attached all the elements to the card. To finish I added faux stitching with a gold pen and highlights with a gold Sakura pen.
