A polar bear in pink & yellow!

I don't think I've ever used a polar bear on anything other than a Christmas card, but there's a first time for everything, and I think it worked out :o)  One of my lovely customers requested this one - her little girl currently has a bit of a polar bear 'thing' and these are her favourite colours, so fingers crossed this will be ok!



I was quite happy with this card until I saw the photos, and now I've decided the flowers look a bit imbalanced!  So I might alter things ever so slightly before it gets handed over.  The image is from Pink Cat Studio, coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers, with glamour dust on the hood.  Papers are K&Co, flowers are from Wild Orchid.  The tag was cut with a Stampin' Up punch, butterfly cut with an x-cut die, number 5 with a sizzix die (night & day alphabet).  The daughter sentiment I think is Cuddly Buddly - coloured in with promarkers to match and the birthday sentiment was computer generated.  The card blank is a large 8" square made from Papermill hammered card.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges:

It's my mum's birthday today, although she doesn't read my blog so there's probably no point saying happy birthday lol.  We'll be going round to take her pressies this evening - luckily I made her card ages ago, although I've just realised it needs a box and I didn't make that, so I'll have to quickly make one when I've picked the boys up from school and nursery!  Will catch up with you all later :o)
