Birthday Bears



Here's one for the kiddies - a birthday card with lots of bright colors. It began with a stencil from Creative Expressions called "Fade Away" and I simply sponged distress inks through the stencil onto a white card base. The image came from my box of stamped images and was colored with Copics, adding fluorescent colors to the party hats and cupcake. As you can see, I finished this card with accents of purple and green - my favorite color combination :)

I'm sharing this with the following challenges:
