Birthday Bear

Hello fellow crafters,
It's time for a new challenge over at Penny's Paper Crafty, and this week our theme is

Our sponsor this week is

For my card I have used one of our sponsor's digital images, Barry Birthday, plus the bonus greeting Let's Party, and the bonus Gift (coloured pink), which I digitally added behind Barry's party hat. I can't believe
I have had this fab DP in my stash for about 5 or 6 years, and never used it!! I have given this card to a 
dear little boy, Hayden, who turned 6 last Saturday.
A close-up look at Barry who I have coloured with Promarkers. 
I put Glossy Accent on his nose.
I printed a separate Gift, cut it out, and placed it as a pop-up element on the
inside of the card. The glittered hats and balloons are cut from self-adhesive
glitter fun foam, and I drew strings for those balloons with a black Promarker.

Challenges I would like to enter are:-
                                                        I Love Promarkers - 'Layer It Up'
