Happy Birthday Dad!

Here is the card I made for my Dad's birthday on Saturday.  When I first saw this image in the 2011-2012 Hostess set Tagtastic I knew I had to have it!  I love bears and I thought this "little" fellow was so cute trying to ride the tricycle!  I also used a product from the brand new 2012-2013 Stampin' Up CatalogApothecary Accents Framelits.  To get the various colors on the bear image I colored directly on my stamp with Stampin' Write markers and then "huffed" on it to moisten the ink before stamping.  (I added a little more "brown" to the bear's fur with my watercolor pencils, too.)   I used the star image from Itty Bitty Bits and the starburst image from Pennant Parade to make the festive background.
Stamps:  Tagtastic, Pennant Parade, Itty Bitty Bits
Ink:  Pacific Point, Real Red, Chocolate Chip
Cardstock:  Naturals White, Real Red, Pacific Point
Accessories:  Big Shot, Apothecary Accents Framelits, Silver Brads, Decorative Label Punch, 1/16" Handheld Circle Punch, Stampin' Dimensionals, Watercolor Pencils, Pacific Point Striped Ribbon (retired)
