Rhubarb Joy Fold

This sweet Rhubarb teddy bear image is a digi from Sweet N Sassy stamps, which I colored with Copics and popped up on some 3M foam tape for a boy's birthday card. Does everyone have a tough time NOT prettying these up? Ohh, how I want to add glittery accents, fluffy lace and pretty flowers ... but I didn't because this is for a little boy (Kelly, not a girl - had to keep reminding myself that).  :)

The DP is from BasicGrey's Lime Rickey, which I typically reach for whenever I am creating a boy's card or just want bright, cheerful colors.  The Happy Birthday sentiment is from the new set - Elementary Elegance - from Stampin Up, and the cs is all Stampin Up as well - Night of Navy, Bashful Blue and Bordering Blue.  The "To You from Me" tag is repurposed from a package I had received from my SU demonstrator, and I can't recall what set that is from (sorry).

This photo shows a few of the items I used to create this card.  Note:  The Bakery twine can also be purchased at Sweet N Sassy stamps site.  The photo below is a closeup shot of the same.

So, stop on over at Sweet 'n Sassy Digi Challenge blog to join in the fun this week (SNSDC47).  The challenge is to create a joy fold card.  I had made joy fold cards before in workshops, but I don't recall making one of these on my own. Boy, they are fun!! If you haven't tried one before, check out the tutorial HERE!

Thanks for stopping by!  Please leave a comment and let me know what you think. 
Happy Stampin and Scrappin to you all!

P.S. - Also, don't miss the blog candy below on the last post (ends April 3rd).
