Beary Big Hugs

I checked out the Belles 'n Whistles challenge this week and saw that it was clean and simple.  Well, I've been wanting to do an all-white card as I think they look so pretty.  So I decided to make an all-white card using one of my new stamps.

I'm using Beary Big Hugs on this card.  Doesn't she look so precious giving her teddy bear a big ole hug?  I colored her with my prismacolor pencils and gamsol.  In order to give my card some texture, I embossed the background and used a Martha Stewart punch on the edges of the cardstock.  I used foam tape between my layers to give it some dimension.  I added a white ribbon and bow and my card was done.  No flowers, no glitter, no pearls, no charm -- hmm, I guess that's why they call it clean and simple lol.  Thanks for stopping by!
