Bear Hugs

A super quick card to share today made using a WPlus9 set.

I just couldn't resist popping this inquisitive cub on the 'hugs' die reaching down for all that honey in the hive.  He's been coloured with alcohol markers with a few white gel pen highlights and fussy cut out.

I've added these two extra photos to show a close up of the hive that swings, its attached with white thread between two duplicate hives and to the back of the 'hugs' die.  The bees also have a little bit of Wink on their wings but they're so tiny its impossible to see unless the sunlight catches the card.
