Benson Bear- birthdays

 I love Benson bear, and this cute image, Benson Bear - Birthdays is absolutely adorable!  I coloured him with my pens and then used MME Oliver papers.  I added some prestty lace, ribbon, a crotcheted flower and button, and a pearl swirl.  Very girly embellishments for a not so girly colour scheme!!  This is for my Mum's birthday, and she is really not into pink or girly, so the colours are perfect!

Supplies
Sentiment: Craftwork cards
Colouring medium: promarkers 
Warm grey 1-4, 
midnight blue, twilight sky, grey green, cool aqua, 
gold, mustard, pastel yellow, buttercup
 Papers: MME Oliver
 Embellishments: lace, ribbon, pearls, button, crotchet flower
