bear hugs!

today i have a card i made for the current paper smooches sparks challenge - anything goes!! how can you NOT play along with that, right? ha ha!

i made this card for a close family friend (read: family) who recently took a spill and i wanted to send some love even though i'm not there!

i colored the bear (from chubby chum pals) with some copics and then popped him up. the sentiment was stamped with staz-on ink onto some vellum and then i sewed all of the banners onto the card base. i wanted a little more sewing on the card, so i also made a base for bear and then sewed a line along the perimeter of the card. 

love sewing on cards! and this card in particular is super fall to me - i love the colors together! and the texture from using my sewing machine is like a sweater - (sweater weather is my FAVORITE)! so i hope this card arrives and feels like a big warm (bear!!) hug! :)
