Birthday Bear

I've been trying to use lots of varied cuts from my Cricut lately.  I found this cute little bear on the "font" feature of the Baby Steps cartridge and wanted to use it.  I know enough people who had babies recently, I guess I'll need to save this for one of them turning 1 next year.  :)

There was no shadow for the bear, but luckily the black layer is a blackout so I was able to cut two of that and adhere them together.  I cut the bear at 5 inches, which was a good size for a card, I think.  I used some Icicle Stickles on the yellow layers and Lavendar Stickles on the number 1 (which I had already colored over with a darker shade of purple- it cut in the same purple as the rest of the bib and I didn't feel like cutting the whole thing over again just for the one number).  I put a purple button on the top of the birthday hat.  To finish it off, I gave him a shiny nose with some Glossy Accents.

This card is being entered into the following challenges:
