Beccy's Place - Not Beary Happy

I went to BC for a few days to visit friends and completely forgot that a great nephew wouild be  turning two while I was gone. So when I got home I hurriedly made a card and it is off to the mail box.  I chose this poor sad bear as my image  to reflect how I felt. So sorry that it will be late but he is  way too young to ever remember lol!  The image is from Beccy's Place and is called 'Not Beary Happy'. I coloured him with Copics and used paper from a Michaels paper pad called 'Bright Splash'.The cardstock is Emerald Envy  from Stampin' Up. The stars on the elongated rectangle are from a Stampin' Up's embossing folder called 'Lucky Stars' and the brown stars are punched out of a Stampin' Up punch. Lots of Stampin' Up  going on here :O). The butterfly is a Heartfelt Creations die cut from their Garden Romance set.
