Build A Bear Birthday

My daughter was invited to a birthday party a little last minute and we needed a birthday card. She picked all of the colors and left me to make the card while she went with Daddy to dance class. This card features Lavender Lace, Pretty In Pink, Whisper White and various colors for my Stampin' Up Markers for the balloons. I used the Stampin' Up Build a Bears set called "Beary Best Friends". The sentiment is from "Beary Nice Wishes". Now I have to say that I used my Stampamajig for this card A LOT! I stamped the first balloon in the bears paw and then stamped some balloons on post it notes to mask that balloon and then built onto that. I stamped the gift bag originally in Real Red Classic ink, then used my Stampin Up markers to color it in. After doing this you couldn't see the lines that were stamped so I lined up my Stampamajig again and stamped the gift bag in Black StazOn. I dropped my pen on the face of the bear, and since I was under a time crunch I stamped the head on another sheet of cardstock cut it out, and stuck it down. The party hat is also stamped separately and added on. The dots in the background were made using the dotted embossing folder which sadly the name is escaping me at the present.
Hopefully her friend liked the card!
