B is for Birthday Bear

Happy Thursday everyone,
I hope you are having a wonderful week. It's unseasonably warm this week. It's very spring like out even though the leaves are almost gone, but we are enjoying it. We're looking at cooler weather next week just in time for Halloween :)

Today's project is a card I made for my niece who celebrated her birthday over the weekend. I can't believe how big the kids are getting in my family. The youngest is now 9.
 October Afternoon's Cakewalk collection is just the cutest. I used it a few weeks ago on a Project Life layout during my birthday week and I'm really happy to have another excuse to use it again.

The background of this card is done with the Sunshine die from Paper Trey Ink. I sewed the pieces on to printer paper that I cut down to the size I wanted it to be for the card. The sewing was a little time consuming because I had to keep stopping every three or so sections to pull the strings through so it didn't get knotted up.
My niece thought the card was the coolest. I love hearing "Look it's a Tina Card". lol
Have a great day everyone, before I leave for work I want to pull out some stuff for tomorrow's Stampin' on Friday video so that I can think about it all day and come up with a plan for a card.
Hugs and happy crafting,
