Bugaboo Birthday Bash - Day 1

Today sees the start of the Birthday Celebrations as Bugaboo celebrates it's 3rd birthday.

"Happy Birthday Bugaboo!"

So the challenge over at Catch The Bug this Saturday is


but the fun doesn't end there - there is a week long celebration planned, with daily challenges and loads of prizes to be won, so it's well worth a visit to the Catch The Bug blog this week!

I've made this boys birthday card to celebrate, using a lovely Theodore bear image available here.  I printed him directly onto my card and made him nice and big.  Gave him a quick 90deg rotation and then coloured him with Promarkers and added glaze to the balloons and wording.  The balloon in the corner is cut using a dienamics die and the sentiment computer generated.

This is the first time I've printed a Bugaboo directly onto my card and not mounted the image in any way and I have to say, I'm quite pleased with the result as I think children love big bright images more than layers & embellishments!

Any way that's my first card for the Birthday week, hop on over to the Catch The Bug Blog for more inspiration then join us in the fun, Jx
