Have a Beary Happy Birthday {TCPTuesRETRO}



Yes, it's TCP Tuesday on a Saturday.....story of my life lately!  Alma is this week's Hostess with the Mostess and her challenge is to go RETRO!  Choose any past TCP Tuesday challenge and show us what you got!!  My card was made with TCP Tuesday 109....a super fun sketch from Leigh!


I LOVE to make round cards, but don't do it often enough!  I used a new set to me from The Cat's Pajamas, A Beary Good Year.  I paired PJ with some My Mind's Eye Stella and Rose Gertie papers.  PJ was colored with Copics, cut out and popped up for dimension.  I gave him a fun party hat and some balloons (also from the A Beary Good Year) tied with my FAVE Divine Twine in Cherry.  Some machine stitching and a couple sentiment flags finish the card!

You can find all of the details for this week's TCP Tuesday RETRO challenge here.  I hope you'll play along!

Thanks for stopping by!

Absolutely Adorable Jackie! And pure genius to use the twine for the balloon strings - I'll have to try that with some of my balloon stamps! Love it.

This is really cute Jackie! The twine for the balloon strings was so creative. I love that the hat matched the balloons and they polka dotted. Great shading on the bear too.

Jackie, your colouring is phenomenal. The bear and balloons are perfectly done. I love how you've combined so many prints and fonts. I also love the embossing on the scalloped edge.

This card is so bright and fun! It makes me want to blow up some balloons and eat some sickly-sweet birthday cake! ;) I love the sentiment banners. They add so much to his! Thanks for sharing.
