HYCCT1406 ~bear party~

Hello Blogger Friends! Thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We are celebrating Veteran's Day here in the U.S.
So a big thank you to all the active and retired military from my family to you for your service. We realize we have the freedoms we do because of your service.
Now onto my card for today. This is another that I made for 2 challenges on Splitcoaststampers. I am the hostess for the color challenge #501 and I chose real red, crumb cake and coastal cabana.
red, crumb cake (kraft), coastal cabana
For this HYCCT1406 challenge, Lee is our hostess and she wants us to use a bear on our card.
I have been wanting to try the card in a box technique. I thought this was the perfect time.  I didn't use any stamps on this one just die cuts and punches and die cuts. 

I used the fresh prints designer paper from Stampin-Up for my card. I thought the pattern was bright and cherry for my bear party.

The balloons are made from the Stampin-Up small oval punch. The cupcake is the cupcake builder punch and I used designer paper.

My bear is made from several punches: large & small oval, circle punches and the owl builder punch.
The "hi" word is a die from MFT. The hearts are a die from the MFT Blueprints 15 dies.
I found this tutorial on how to make the box in a card. The bear tutorial is from Heather's blog.
Well, that's my card for today. Time to dim the lights in Charmed Life Land for another day. So until next time.......God bless.
