Commissioned Birthday Card

A customer asked me to make her a 3rd birthday card for her niece so I used a CD that I bought recently at the NEC - Debbi Moore's Birthday Bears CD.  I used one of the decoupage images and also printed out some of the black-and-white images, pasted them into Word, put a box around them and cut them up and put them inside a flap in the card so the little girl can colour them in.  I used my Cricut for the numbers and letters.  I used various backing papers from the CD and did the verse and sentiment in My Craft Studio.  I didn't put any decorations on the card as I didn't want a three year old pulling anything off but instead gave her pictures she could colour.  The customer was pleased with my creation.

This card fits the following challenges:

Craft Your Passion - Anything goes
Party Time Tuesday - One or more balloons
Creative Card Crew - Anything goes
Crafty Creations - Beary project
Little Red Wagon - Use a die-cut
Hodge Podge - Birthday cards
Crafty Catz - Birthday bear
Cutie Sunday - Anything but Christmas
CD Sunday - 3 of a kind - I've used the number 3 - hope that's OK
Craft Your Days Away - Punch it out.
