Happy Birthday Papa!

It's my Dad's birthday tomorrow and I thought I'd make him a Popcorn Bear card. My Dad loves a good coffee and always tries to catch 40 winks whenever he can so this little bear was the natural choice! The Sketch is from Sketch Saturday. The Creative Card Crew are looking for Celebration cards. The Saturday Challenge wants Autumnal colours and Stamping for the weekend would like to see Orange, Brown and Green. Hopefully I've used enough of those colours to qualify.
The patterned papers are by Memory Makers. The image is the fabulous Popcorn Bear. The Tags are stamps from my See'D's collection that I embossed with gold embossing powder before adding the eyelets and string. 'PAPA' is green funky foam that I die cut using the Quickutz Phoebe skinny mini alphabet. The leaves are also Quickutz.
Hope you are all having a great weekend. I'm off to work again soon :( but we had a fab family service at church this morning. My kiddies were so well behaved I couldn't help but feel a bit proud ;)
Ciao for now!
