Sneaky Bear Cupcake Birthday

Outside Picture

Inside Picture

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. 

I am going to enter it in Sassy Cheryl's Color Me Challenge this week.  Come on and join me.  The cupcake digis are $2.00 through Monday and then there is a special sale on all of her digis going on right now.  Click here and check it out.  You might even win a free digi for your "fun" I mean hard work.  .)

  5. Yep, I know what you mean about taking pictures. Not my favorite thing. That's why I stick to people. :)
    Both versions are gorgeous though, but it's funny how light can make things look so differently.
