That sweet bear~

This bear stamp had to be one of my first stamps, and it has always been one of my favorites! Color him up, and your card is half done!! It's by Inkadinkado, but I do not know if it is still available out there.

Using more papers from the box that Beverly sent~ Papertrey Kraft is the base, then a layer from Memory box sugardrop that is soft browns. The Nestability label die was used to cut out a brown and pink print from Memory Box sweetbay, then the bear was cut out and layered onto a piece of blue/mint paper that looks in a honeycomb pattern. You might be able to see that pattern if you increase the size of the photo by clicking on it. On a day when I can just play, would be fun to use that paper with some daisies and bees!

A Martha Stewart mint ribbon finishes it off- because her ribbons are so soft and silky there are many glue dots holding that bow down, lol! I think I lost money on this one, lol!!
