I colored the images with Prismacolor pencils and OMS. I couldn't resist adding some silver sprinkles to the cupcake! And I had to dress up Teddy too with a bow. What fun!!
The background is made using a technique called Cling 'N Scrunch. I learned that from the Technique Junkie Newsletter. They have published hundreds of techniques for stampers. I did mine a bit differently (see a trend here?) by adding some mica powder to my spray color. You can see a bit of the glimmer in the snippet picture up top. You'll have to just take my word on this that the whole background is shiny and glimmers.
Oh, please notice my hand-stitched edge to the card! Sheesh, I worked hard on that. Kinda.
