Best Birthday Ever...

Hello again my fabulous peeps! It’s Tuesday and time for another Through the Classroom Door Blog challenge.
I hope you've had the chance to read my last post indicating that the newest edition of the magazine is now available. I equally hope you're busy catching up on your reading, ogling over the tons of inspiration and/or trying your hand at the amazing tutorials that are within it!

If you missed that post, no worries, just take a peek at the video at the top left sidebar and you will see a little preview of it.
Now, on to this week’s challenge...

Our awesome sponsor is non-other than...
Home of Dustin Pike's Original Hand Drawn Graphics.
I have had the privilege of using Under Bear for my inspirational card this week...
I had a ton of fun creating this card because it's for a very special little girl's approaching birthday and she loves teddy bears.
You might of seen some of her handy work when we hung out over the Christmas / New Years holidays.
Anyway, I printed Under Bear onto Neenah card stock and then coloured it with my Copic Markers.

This is the inside...

I used Kraft paper for the card base and scraps for the embossed pieces. The DP's are from MY MINE'S EYE "Hootenanny" Paper Pad. The sentiment I just cut out from one of the single sheets in the paper pad.
I used some stickles on Under Bear's heart patch and on the clear star stickpin. A little glossy accents, and a few pearls for that final touch.
Copic Colours Used:
E30 31 33 35
N0 01 03 05 06 10
YR 02 04 07 09
The sketch is Deconstructed Jen #3

A closer look at the digital image…


I will be entering my card over at the following challenge(s)...

Cheers Peeps!
