Bear Hug

Happy Friday to you! I made this card several months ago for DH and had it posted to my SCS gallery, but didn't get around to showing it to you here - shame on me! {giggle...}
As I've mentioned before, most of my projects use Stampin'Up products, but I do purchase other items to supplement my stash (there are WAY too many enablers out there!). I had used Nestabilities to cut out my panels, and a Cuttlebug embossing folder for the background. This adorable bear is from the "Under the Stars" stamp set, and the honey pot/bees come from "Button Bear" (retired). The images are colored with markers, and the sentiment was printed via computer. I lightly sponged ink on the main image/sentiment panels, and also on the background textured mosaic tiles to bring out the pattern. I added some brads to the corners and dotted around the frame. DH really enjoyed this one and I remember his laugh, so hey... I'm happy!
Stamps: Under the Stars, Button Bear
Paper: Real Red, Creamy Caramel, black, white
Ink: black and various SU markers for coloring/dotting
