Happy Birthday To You

Saturday June 17, 2017
I have been playing along at
This is for Bonus challenge 
This has really been fun creating and doing some things that I have never done before. Like the slider card and this card is using your die as an embossing die vs. cutting it out.. I've never tried it before..

The BD- die, bear and bear die are all My Favorite Things.  I first took Ranger Oxide ink and colored the card front then did the embossing sandwich and embossed the Happy Birthday To You..  Surprise it came out and looks great.. I then stamped the cute bear in the present and colored it with copics. I die cut it out and placed it over above the sentiment area.  I used Wink of Stella and brushed it over the ribbon and the embossed sentiment.
I cut the piece down and laid it on some teal card stock and added this to white card base.  I will be doing this technique again.. I need to dig through my dies and see what I have to work with..  I am thinking you could use circles /squares ... all sorts of awesome dies..
