the brave birthday

i have another birthday related project to share. 
this time, it's a card and it's for the lawnscaping challenge - birthdays! (because it's their 2nd year anniversary!! happy birthday to lawnscaping!!!)

this card i made for my best friend's little girl who's turning 4 soon! her birthday party is all brave/merida themed! which i think is FANTASTIC because i LOVE all things scotland! :)

have you seen the movie brave? if you have, this card works! lol! :)
let's see i used lawn fawn's stamp sets: critters in the forest, bannerific, critters in the snow, and harold's abcs!

yes, i know there is a lot going on, but i wanted to make it FUN and exciting for a 4 year old to look at! (at least for the .2 seconds she'll look at it before moving on to her presents! :)

the bear and the banners are popped up for dimension. and i even used my sewing machine to sew around the edges! although...that's hard to tell...because, er..there's a lot going on! :) ha ha!
anyway, enjoy!


  1. That scene is so cute! Brave is one of my favorite movies! :)

  2. I just love how you turned the polar bear into a brown bear! I still have to see Brave, but regardless, the card works, because I still love it, even though I haven't seen the movie yet! The mix of patterns is also fantastic!
