Inspired By All the Little Things #70

Today, I have a card to share for 
Inspired By All the Little Things #70:

I love the cozy texture of the leaves with the scarf and cup of hot chocolate!
I focused on the scarf and remembered how the bear from 
Neat and Tangled's Beary Merry set wears a scarf....

I stamped the bear onto it's coordinating diecut that I cut from watercolour paper
in versamark and heat embossed it in clear.
I coloured it in with my Zig Clean Colour Real Brush markers and a water brush,
blurring the edges of the stripes I coloured, so they'd have more of a blended look.
I stamped the mug (also from Beary Merry, masking out the Santa face
and coloured the background to match the bear's tummy.

I stamped the sentiment (using Simon Says Stamp's Many Thanks stamp set)
in Altenew Jet Black.
I added a leaf (using the same technique as the bear & Essentials By Ellen's Thankful stamp & die)
to fill in the gap -- I love the extra fall feel this little detail brings!
I diecut my frame using PTI's Shaker Shape: Rectangle die 
and tied some button twine around it, before adhering the bear over top with 
some dimensional adhesive.

Visit Inspired By All the Little Things to see the rest of the DT's takes

You've made his scarf look just like the photo, Leigh, and his own coloring is like the leaves. This is such a cute card.
