Happy Birthday Shy Bear

Oh my oh my!!! I am addicted to Shy Bears!!!! Is this the cutest image you ever saw??? And I just loved coloring it and creating my card. The Shy Bears are Squigglefly digi images and I am OVER my fear of working with them. Love them. here is how I made the card after coloring the image with Copics...wanted to add a little bling to the card so I added some clear glitter using those Sakura Strardust pens that I love. I embossed the card using the Sizzix Flowers embossing folder. I tapped an oval picture frame mat on the outside of the embossing folder prior to embossing so the embossing would only appear around my image and not on cool is that? The sentiment is computer generated using the Adorable font...and then I matted the image on a piece of SU paper that had been punched at the bottom using MS Lace Heart punch. I used some of the leftover hearts from the punch to embellish the bottom of the card and then rounded my corners. I was going to add ribbon to the card but decided to leave it alone...what do you think? Ribbon or no ribbon? Well thanks so much for stopping by and leaving me some love. Hope your day is a great one...I will be by to see you.

I'm so glad you got over your fear of coloring these little guys because your cards with them are so precious! I love the way you embossed around the image (haven't done that myself yet!) and the colors are wonderful! I think it's great without the ribbon, but it would look good with ribbon too. Where would you put it?
