Lawn Fawn: Beary Birthday Card

Lawn Fawn Beary Birthday Card by Maria Byrd |

Good Monday Morning!  I'm happy today for being able to finish this Beary Birthday Card.  The last card I made was back in April.  It took me a while to unpack and organize my crafting supplies from our recent move to a smaller city.  Actually, I still couldn't find the lamps I used for taking indoor photos, so I had to use the flash which washed out the picture.  But, it did catch the shine of the gold embossing.

Also, not to make excuses, but I've also been grieving over the loss of my mom back in early March.  It didn't really hit me until after our move was over.  Only then I was able to process what happened.  So, being able to make this card is definitely a good sign even though I had to stay up until 5 AM! 😊

The cute little bears are from Lawn Fawn's recent new released You're Claw-some.  They're colored with Derwent Inktense Pencils. I used Darice embossing folders (Swirl and Multi-Dot) and Distress Inks (Faded Jeans, Barn Door) for the background.  Of course, gold embossing and Sakura Stardust Gelly Roll Pens for shimmer!
