Stars 'n' Stripes..

..is the theme for this weeks challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
Apart from having a few images stamped for me, I actually own just one PB stamp at the moment and this is it, 'bear blank 1', He's so adorable though don't you think? I stamped the 'blank' with a tiny 'birthday wishes' greeting, from a set of montage stamps from Stamps Away.
He is standing on top of the 'u' in the word Auntie, which I made up from rub-ons which are from K&Co. The striped paper is from my stash, as are the gold brads. I punched out a few leaves and used them with some tiny paper flowers to make the birthday bouquet.

  1. Ooh this is really cute! Love the way you have coloured the bear. I have these stamps and hardly ever use them .. but I see other people's great cards with them on and think I should use them more!
