Happy Hello Bear - Stampin' Up! Happier Than Happy

 I'm playing along with the CAS Colours & Sketches team again.  They have a fun layout which I'll be honest,  I had a hard time keeping myself from adding more details and embellishments!  But I stuck to the 'clean and simple' directive.

  I'm using the big bear from the Happier Than Happy set along with a narrow strip of the coordinating Happy Forest Friends DSP.

  I wanted to add the little stump and some mushrooms and gems but as you can see this is still a really cute card.

  I started with a Sahara Sand base and then added the layer of DSP on the edge.  I cut a square frame out of Mossy Meadow cardstock using the Stylish Shapes dies.

  The bear is stamped in Soft Suede onto Basic White and then I colored in his nose and mouth area with the light Crumb Cake Blends.  I popped him over the frame for dimension.  The 'hello' sentiment is also from this same set but I used my Mossy Meadow marker to ink up just the hello part leaving the 'baby' uninked. 

  The final detail is a little Calypso Coral baker's twine bow that I found in my scrap ribbon bin.  It retired long ago but baker's twine never goes out of style!  There is a ribbon combo back in Old Olive and Sahara Sand if you're interested in current ribbon that matches this suite.

  Thanks for looking!  Did you stamp today?
