It's Monday -- Bee Sweet!

Today I am hosting the Splitcoaststampers Technique Challenge 464 and it's all about sewing! If you have never sewed on cards before, check out the challenge for a wonderful tutorial by Lori Craig. 
My cute little bear is wishing someone a sweet day! I embossed him using VersaFine Onyx and Clear EP on Ultrasmooth White CS and then colored with Spectrum Noir markers. The sentiment and star are stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black. The star is colored in with a Black Spica Glitter pen. All of these images are from Lawn Fawn's Critters in Costume -- and there are coordinating dies!! My designer paper (including the flower) is from Pebbles' Walnut Grove collection - perfect papers for this set!
 

I sewed around my main panel using white thread (should have used black!) and a fancy stitch. Everything is held together with 1/2" Scor-Tape and Zva Dimensionals. All linked supplies are available at i {heart} papers!
