Happy 3rd birthday Elias

Normally not one for "cute" cards, but had to make an exception when I saw this Teddy Bo & co stamp set as I knew it would be perfect for my nephew's birthday.

Turns out it is also perfect for this weeks Colours beginning with B challenge over at the  Allsorts challenge blog

I simply stamped the image on white card, coloured the bear with my Denim Blue and Tan Promarkers.
I then cut the balloon from a patterned paper I had in my stash and added a peel off number.
I stamped the image again and cut off the paw and stuck this on top of the original paw and end of balloon so it looks like the bear is holding the balloon

I stamped my nephews name with blue denim distress ink and added some matching Bakers Twin.
Before assembling it all on a DL card blank, I inked the edges with distress ink to give it a bit more dimension.

Hope you like it
