Jacob's First Birthday

 Jacob, my great-nephew, celebrates his first birthday on Monday and I want to send him a very special birthday card. I used a LOTV's stamp "Patchwork Hot Air Balloon" that I stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa ink on White CS. I paper pieced the balloon and colored the bear with Copics.  I masked  the image and sponged clouds in the background. I cut letters and the #1 from adhesive backed CS  with Cricut and attached to the card. I attached the image to a mat of glitter dotted CS and added to a Turquoise Card Base.  The fun part of the card is the inside.( See below) I stamped the bear inside and added a balloon of red honeycomb paper.  I surrounded the bear with clouds printed with best wishes and added Jacob's name. Clouds were printed on the computer.
