Rhubarb Bear - Chillin' Out and Celebrating

Have you seen the new absolutely adorable Rhubarb Bear from Sweet and Sassy Stamps. Oh my goodness, she is adorable! I purchased most of the digi images so far. I managed to put together two cards with some of the bears I colored. I pulled out some older Basic Grey Papers and some fun ribbon and here is the result.

First a little Birthday Celebration with this adorable image of her with some balloons and a card. I saw the email from SSNS with some weekly tips. One of them is to use black for contrast. You can read about it here. I love the look of the bold black against the fun bright colors on this birthday card. It doesn't look too elegant or depressing in my opinion. I think it makes the other layers pop.

And here she is chillin' out on her inter tube enjoying a cool lemonade. She really knows how to get through this heat wave. :o) I made this card using the Sweet Stop Sketch #118 for this week. I tried to stay as close to the sketch as possible.
