I needed a card for my Great Nephew, Riley's 3rd Birthday - it took a little while for motivation to hit, but when it did .......... I was on a roll!

I really enjoyed making this card ;-)

I printed this gorgeous image on white cardstock three times, hand cut out and layered various elements, highlighting with Kindy Glitz, gold stickers sentiment and stars have also been used.  I went through my stash and found the most perfect backing papers ;-)  Riley's name I created in Photoshop (using some newfound skills from my TAFE course, and cut out with Spellbinder dies and Cuttlebug.

I would like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Cards for Men #9 - Animals (bears are animals, right ;-))
Creative Card Crew - Bling
Our Creative Corner - Anything Goes
abc Challenge - M - Make it sparkle

Looks like the "Anything Goes' challenge was popular - there were 84 entries!  Once again, very difficult for the DT to pick a favourite!
