Birthday Bear

I needed to make a birthday card for my mom, so I made the time and created this:

The card base is from SVG Cutting Files.  It is called Bracket Card Base, and I used the vertical one.  It is approximately 5 3/4"x4 1/2."  I used the insert shape function in Cricut Design Space to cut the two strips.  The vertical pink one is 5 1/2"x1 1/2."  The second one is 1 3/4"x4."  I used the slice feature to get its edges to match the curve of the card base.  That is such a slick feature!

The oval on which the bear is placed it from the "Sentimentals" cartridge.  It was cut at 4.68"x3.31."  The bear is from KaDoodle Bug Designs.  It is from a set called Yummy Treat Bears.  I cut the bear with the popsicle at about 3 3/4" tall.  I used foam tape to adhere him to the card.  I also used some eyes from Peachy Keen Stamps in place of the ones that are cut out.  I covered the eyes, nose, and popsicle with glossy accents.

I used stamps from Jaded Blossom for the sentiments on both the inside and the outside.  The one on the outside came from the Sweet Birthday Wishes set.  The one on the inside is from So Many Birthdays 2.  I finished off the card with some pink gems in two of the corners. 

I made this for the following challenges:
