MIM #214 - Stamping with Neutrals

This week's Make It Monday challenge is all about stamping with neutrals, so I decided to dive right in a go with it.  I recently purchased the cute polka dot parade baby set and thought a cuddly tan teddy bear would fit the bill.  This card came together very quickly.  I stamped a gingham border on the left side of my card and then stamped three bears using the same color, adding a bit of chocolate brown for their tummies.  A simple frame stamped with a sweet sentiment and embellished with two neutral buttons filled the blank space.  I rounded the corners for a softer feel and then tied on some tan and white baker's twine to finish it off nicely.

(I still have not figured out how to rotate my photos when downloading them from my phone.)  Oh well.
