Beary Special Birthday Wishes



I needed to make a birthday card for a 5-year-old girl....my youngest daughter's *bestest* friend. I just love this bear from my Beary Special set and think it is SOOOO adorable for kid cards. I added five balloons from my Beary Special Accessories set, glued them down with some yellow thread behind them, and then gathered all the thread together with some Bright Smooth Bling. The birthday girl's favorite color is yellow and the October Key Ingredient's Kit just happens to have LOTS of yellow DP...perfect! The ribbon is from my Christmas Key Ingredients Kit. The sketch I used is from the Verve Forum.
