A Gift for You

The challenge this week over at Lollipop Crafts is a 1-2-3 Recipe and to make something using 1 decorative paper, 2 stamps and 3 embellishments. But today is also a special post because we are celebrating a surprise birthday...

Happy Birthday Kim Yu!

We all hope you have a wonderful birthday today and with lots of R&R. :D

I made this card using A Gift for You from Sugar Nellie Stamps plus a bear from P. Hillman. I saw a wonderful card created by Kim (PaperBabe) and had to try one out, so that is how this layout came about. I also colored the dress following the Color Copic Me coloring clothes tutorial and used fall colors for the Teddy challenge.
