Birthday Bear...SSS207

It's Saturday and time for another Sweet Stop Sketch challenge. This week we have a twist with the challenge.

I used the adorable Rhubarb Bear from the set, Rhubarb's Birthday Wish. I also used all of the Birthday stamps from the NEW set, Script Birthdays. The first thing I thought of when I saw this set was how cool it would be to use them to make a background. I got a huge order of supplies from Stampin' Up on Monday, including some new to me colors. For this card I used Early Espresso, Baja Breeze, and Lucky Limeade. Love these colors together. I also got that cool wooden button in my order. I love texture of wood with this card. I stamped the blue triangle with the wood grain border stamp from the set, Grunge Borders. Then I ran it through the Chevron embossing folder from SU.  I added some Baja Breeze Seam Binding Ribbon and some red and white baker's twine for the button.

I hope you join us over at The Sweet Stop blog and play along with the challenge. You can also see what the rest of the Sugar Babies created with the sketch and theme this week.
