Shhh It's Cloie's Birthday

I made this card for a special young lady's birthday.  Her Mom is a friend of mine and we are all so proud of Cloie.  She just finished her first semester at college and made the President's List with a 4.0 GPA.  At Christmas they bought her a car and hid it at my house.  It was so much fun being in on Cloie's surprise.  I guess I am not only Sassy, but I am Sneaky too!

The image is called There's A Bee On Your Nose and you can find it here.  Of course it is another delightful design by Cheryl Alger that I absolutely love  I colored it in peach and blue shades with my Copic markers.  I decided to color the bear a dark brown this time and so I used brown and peach papers for my card.  The card stock is all Stampin Up and the musical notes DP is My Minds Eye.  I used my large scalloped circle and circle Nestabilities die cuts.  The ribbon is from my stash and the flower embellishment I made with a scrap of paper from my stash.  I popped a brad in which is from My Minds Eye too.  I typed the sentiment on my computer and distressed the edges of some of the papers with distress inks.  I also took a little sparkly chalk and shaded a bit around the white.

I am entering this in Sassy Cheryl's Challenge #43.  We had to use bears this week.  Punish me puleez.  Next to turtles I love bears best.  Fun to make, so why don't you join us.  We would love to see what you can create each week.  Just click here and see what it is all about.
