Birthday Bear

A friend asked me to make a card for her mother-in-law. One of the cards from the "Set of Minis" that I made last month caught her eye. This time 'round I went for a larger 5"x5" card, and although I stuck to the original theme, I made some minor changes...for the better, I hope. I dressed up the die-cuts with some stitching and chose a larger image to stamp, which was a lot more fun to colour in with my aquarelle pencils. Of course, I could not resist throwing in some gemstones!
