Beary Birthday - (MOJO 159 and PPA63)

Today's card was created for MOJO Monday Sketch Challenge 159 and Pals Paper Arts Challenge #63.  I love combining challenges especially when one is a sketch challenge and the other is a color challenge.

The little Build A Bear girl was stamped onto watercolor paper with Basic Black classic ink and then colored in with Stampin' Write Markers and a blender pen. I like to heat set my stamped image before I color it to prevent blurring and smudging. To create the balloons I stamped the balloon image on colored card stock and then punched them out with the 3/4" circle punch.
