Birthday Bear

Good morning 🙂  Where is October going???  The 20th already! That means it’s the day that a brand new challenge starts at the Sheepski Designs Facebook Group.  All of our challenges are ATG with an image from Sheepski Designs, but there is also an optional twist to help direct you, if you need.  This month, it’s Fall Colors.  I’ve chosen Augie for my card.  I colored this sweet little teddy bear up with my Copics, then fussy cut him out, so I could make him “climb” over the sentiment.  I used a background paper in a plaid of warm autumnal colors, and die cut the “Happy” in the middle.  After inking all the edges with Distress Inks, I placed this on a light tan mat.  I die cut the “birthday” from some shimmery gold CS, glued it down, and added some shadowing with a fineliner, then covered the word with Glossy Accents to give it some dimension.  A smattering of gold embossing and some gold sequins finish the card off. 🙂

I’d like to enter this in the following:
