Pooh Bear Birthday Card

Happy Saturday.
Hope everyone is having a nice weekend. We are having fabulous weather here in Michigan. Nice and cool...for a change. Supposed to heat back up after a couple of nice days. Today I have a cute Pooh Bear card and I used something I haven't used in a long time....a sticker. I have had these cute Pooh stickers for a couple of years and decided to pull them out for Merry's challenge at Merry Made Cards Crafts. I used sketch #120 from Flutterby Wednesdays.
I followed the Sketch fairly closely, but used butterflies instead of a circle and moved the brads a bit.

I sponged some blue ink on the white background of the sticker to unify the composition. The white looked to glaring. All the DP is from Crate Paper. I made the card from the same paper as it has a nice weight to it. I cut the frame with a Sizzix die. I colored the butterflies with Copic Markers. Added some ribbon, four yellow brads, and a metal bee charm.

Stamps: Butterfly - Stampin' Up, Happy Birthday- My Sentiments Exactly!

Sticker: Classic Pooh: Michel and Company
