Balloon Bear

Hello! Today's card uses one of the adorable Gruffies stamps. I colored it with my prismacolor pencils and did the out of the box look with the balloon. I dug thru my embossing folders and found this forgotten gem, been ages since I used it! Perfect for my birthday card. Challenges I'm entering are listed below. Thanks for stopping and if your a local peep stay warm it's freezing out there today!!

What a great happy birthday bear! Love the bright colors with the check and dot designer papers. The balloon looks great being out of the box. Hope you are warm, and enjoying your day.
