Cherish the moment {mama elephant}

Good Monday morning! I'm here with a new Bear Hugs card for you:

I started out with a piece of white cardstock and a paintbrush. I painted on a blue sky with watercolors. It's imperfect and just the look I was going for.

Into the sky, I die-cut a moon (from the stitched sky die set) and backed it in vellum that I colored with a yellow marker.  I then added a spattering of stars, and dusted some glitter onto each one.

The bears just look like they are sitting together looking up at a night sky, don't they?

I colored the bears in a deep brown, to make sure that they stood out from everything else. They are too sweet for words.  I thought the sentiment, from Bloomsies, worked perfectly here. I stamped it on a banner , which I then cut so that it would appear longer.  I hid the cut edges behind the bears.

I hope you like it!
