Box of Bears

Morning and hope you are all well-we have a new challenge at 613 Avenue Create which is ATG/Stamping with an Embossing Folder chosen by Natalie.I have had the idea of a box of bears in my mind for a while and decided time to make one.I usually make my own box cards but have bought some die-cut ones from Craftwork Cards,cardstock from Papermill Direct,the embossing folder is Leaf Vein from Crafters Companion and distress inks,the honeycomb stamp is from Chocolate Baroque,and the assorted Bears are from two unamed stamp sets,I used glossy accents on the honey pots and glamour dust on the Bees wings,the Pine Bough die is from Die-namites.Clothes on Bears and Bees coloured with promarkers.
