Anything Goes Challenge- Happy Birthday/Celebration

Hello hello!!! I hope you are all well. Today's post is for the Anything Goes DT. The theme this week is Happy Birthday/Celebration! A nice and easy one for you all!
There are some gorgeous gorgeous cards by the DT so pop along over to get some wonderful inspiration! Don't forget you can buy your Forever Friends stash from Lynne at The Craft Den.

I have used this cute Forever Friends bear to make a card for a friend's son. I coloured the bear with watercolour pencils, used lyra pencils for the underneath shadow and outlined him with a warm copic (as usual!!) I paper pieced his hat with these cute October Afternoon papers. I used a notebook die from MFT to make the alphabet notebook paper which I ripped a little. The sentiments are also by MFT from the A la Mode "All Star" stamp set.
I'd like to enter this into:

Spoon full of sugar-happy birthday

Usual close up! I love colouring FF bears, they look so effective if you can get the light right.

Crafty stash used: Stamps (Forever Friends; MFT); Watercolour & lyra pencils; Copics; Papers (October Afternoon); Assorted cardstock; die-namics die (MFT); Button; Baker's twine
