Happy Bear-day!

This month's challenge at Ready-Teddy-Go is anything goes so I am entering Bronwyne's birthday card

Check yesterday's post for Birthday Blog Candy here

This is my favourite stamp for birthday cards for the very young, although I have used it for adults too

I edged all the mats and papers with an ink pad.  I also added glaze to the balloons

I personalised the backing paper and over printed with the 1 in the centre of it.  I then cut it out, which can't be seen as it is underneath the topper, and backed it with photo paper for stability.  The glaze on the number isn't quite dry giving a milky appearance
