I Brake for Shy Bears with honey ...

Hello IBFS fans !!
It's Crystal here with a cute Hello card using a Shy Bear from the #6 collection from I Brake For Stamps Store

I did not have a die to cut a small bee so I hand cut one on my own , cut a black base for my bee , vellum  for the wings and yellow for the bee stripes
Shy honey Bear 001
glue yellow stripe on the bee base and trim the over hang
Shy honey Bear 002
I add diamond stickles to vellum to make the wings sparkle
Shy honey Bear 004
for the card front color I laid down the stencil and ink a yellow and walnut to create the background , I cut the oval out to reveal the Shy Bear inside my card , the branch is a die cut from Tim Holtz Bird Branch die , I cut off the bird , I added glitter dots too , the hello is a die cut

inside I stamp and color the Shy Bear and chalk clouds  , glossy accents the honey jar and honey on branch and stickles on the bee wings
