Bear Hugs On Your Birthday!

I saw the fun challenge going on over at 

and hopped to it to create this sparkly card...

I took that sweet bear and party hat from Lawn Fawn's Party Animal stamped on
watercolor paper and used my Gansai Tambi Watercolors to color him in.
I used my craft knife to cut the arms to be able to hold the die cut
Scripty Hugs.  The rest of the sentiment was inked up with
Lawn Fawn Fish Tank ink, using Riley's ABCs.
The yellow panel was die cut using Simon Says Stamp Stitched Rectangles die.

Can you guess how I did the glittery polka dot background?
I used the circle dies from Owen's ABCs die and die cut DCWV Glitzy Glitter Matstack paper,
then randomly glued and snipped off the edges.

That's it for me!
I hope you'll stop by again for my A Blog Named Hero post later today.
I guarantee more color, glitter and sequins!

MAHALO for stopping by!!
