Gruffie Bear Loves Birthday Cake!

Coffee of the Day - Maple Fudge

I needed a very special birthday card for a very special young lady, so what better stamp to pull out of hibernation than one of my Gruffie Bear ones from House Mouse and Friends? I just love these bears so much! they always seem to be getting themselves into situations I find myself in, too! :)

the stamp itself is a big one, so the card is a unique size. buffalo plaid paper is a scrap, so I'm sorry I don't know the mfg. The person who will receive it loves nature and the outdoors, so I thought it fun to use the plaid paper and burlap ribbon to give it a bit more rustic feel, but still add the embellies to make it girly, too.

sentiment is from Create with TLC, button card is vintage, oval sentiment and little flag punches are by SU!, main image die is Spellbinders, tickets & balloon are from my stash, and flowers are by Wild Orchid Crafts. red roses on image as well as WOC ones are covered in distress stickles.

Really Reasonable Ribbons used: Lipstick Red Seam Binding and Burlap Center Stitch Red.

Thanks for stopping by! hope you are doing well. :)

p.s. there is a Build-A-Bear gift card tucked inside this card!
