Surprise, surprise these pictures are of the same card. I took the larger one inside and the colors are not accurate. The blue is actually a beautiful shade of teal so I thought I would step outside and take a picture to see if I could capture more accurate color. Actually all the colors, except for the teal are more accurate in the larger card. I can't believe the difference in these two pictures. I guess I need to take a photography class.
The stamp is a Sassy Cheryl creation called "Sneaky Bear Birthday Cupcake". He also comes in a Sneaky Mouse version too. Turtles and bears are my favorite animals so I had to have the bear version. I colored him with my Copics and used a little Stardust Stickles on the candle flames. Every paper is from my scrap drawers so I don't know the names. I do know I used Taken With Teal SU cardstock. I used by Cricut "Stretch Your Imagination" cartridge to cut the balloons. The ivory gooey border was made with my MS border punch. The Happy Birthday stamp was from Artful Legacy and I tied some bakers twine along the bottom for a little accent.
