Happy Birthday Bear

Still having some fun creating
some things 'just for fun"!

I have been wanting to join in each month
at Cottage Blog for the Cottage Cutz challenges
and this month is is 'Happy Birthday'
You just have to use only Cottage Cutz dies.

I chose Bear & Sign die and made it very girlie!!
I bought this die a year ago January I think and have never used it!

Isn't' she just the sweetest bear??

One of the things I love about these dies,
there might be lots of little pieces, but they are all on one plate
making it impossible for you to lose a die piece
and they are a wonderful way to use up your scrap pieces as well!

I used a couple of scrap card stock pieces for the bear
and a scrap rose print for her tummy!

The sentiment is from an old 2006 SU set called Amazing to Zany
and fit perfectly on the little sign.

I used a Darice confetti background embossing folder and
then layered a pink card stock behind it.
I added a piece of grosgrain ribbon and button to finish!

Your girlie bear critter is so cute! The sign is such a cute way to get the sentiment in as part of the scene. Love it! I haven't seen die cuts like that so I am really happy that played along with us. Hope you join us again soon!

Oh, my gosh, you made the cutest bear ever with her rose print tummy! Love, love, LOVE her! I love the grass at the base of the sign, too. What a darling die set! True about the small bits in the Cottage Cutz dies. I have some and they're pretty fiddly, but come out so cute.

Such a darling critter for our challenge!. Love the girly-ness of this bear. The textured background is terrific. Thanks for the information on the stamp age... we do appreciate knowing how old or how long you might have had the stamps used. Hope to see you play often with Retro Rubber!!

Your card is super cute. An adorable little bear, too would like that it's all on one die, not losing pieces. Great job.
