Birthday Bear

I had to join in the challenges at Splitcoast today, and decided to make a Birthday card for my stash. 

 I had to ink up this fun 'Pebbles' stamp from Stampabilities.  The Distress ink is added after stamping (I cut out a mask).  I used Pinks and Reds and made an envelope to coordinate too for the Mixabilities challenge at Splitcoaststampers.  The Free4all challenge is to use circles. I tried making the Bokeh technique initially, but so many of the light pink areas were not showing the circles,  So, I took the stencil I made and added pen circles and doodling. I added a tag so I can enter the Monday House Mouse & Friends challenge. 

 Here is the envelope I made. I added circles in the two pinks and added doodling on the larger circles.  Sentiment is by SU.
