Stampacular Sunday No. 20


This is my entry for this week's Stampacular Sunday Challenge "Beary Special", which has to feature stamping & a bear. I've used a Joanna Sheen stamp I've had for ages & never used, so it was nice to get that out and I've paper-pieced the dress as I felt she'd be the sort of bear who'd be wearing a flowery dress rather than just a plain one-colour one (am I thinking about this too much!!). I've embossed the card stock using a Cuttlebug embossing folder & sanded over the Happy Birthday and the edges of the oval to highlight the words a bit more, haven't tried that before so was quite pleased with the result. It looks a bit wonky, but that is just the photo as it's been done with my phone as hubby has got the camera in work!
