Bear Hugs... anyone?

I saved this sketch from AmyRysavy of Prairie Paper & Ink when she posted this last Friday. I've been thinking of what image I should use for this one yesterday while at work, and this is what I came out with.


Isn't he the cutest bear? He's not only ready to give BIG hugs, he's also waiting to get one from you too. I bought this set mainly for my daughter. She loves bears and collects them, she has tons of bears and couldn't part with any of them. The bear and the bees are from CC Designs Bear Hugs set. The bear is stamped on a separate whisper white card stock, cut-out and raised with stamping dimensional. The bees are stamped randomly and their wings are covered with crystal stickles.

Stamps: Beautiful Butterflies by CC Designs

Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip, Rose Red card stock from Stampin' Up and Patterned Paper by Autumn Leave

Ink: StāzOn Timber Brown and SU re-inkers

Accessories: Chocolate Chip gross grain ribbon, Prima Flowers, Self-adhesive rhinestones, and Crystal Stickles
