Stamp Simply #58 - This One's for Paula!

Have you ever cringed when you paid the postage for your Christmas cards?  Well, this challenge is for you!  Sharon's Stamp Simply Challenge #58 is to Make It Flat!  That's right - no lumps, bumps or humps - that will add extra postage!
 
I got the best surprise the other day.  My niece, Paula, mailed me a new (never used) set of Bear Necessities.  Isn't this image the cutest!  I kept things pretty simple (perfect for the challenge) so nothing would take away from my Beary image.  The bears were colored with a VersaMark pen and highlighted with alcohol markers and a white pastel pencil.  The image was then clear embossed and embellished with a clear Stardust pen, Dazzling Diamonds, and diamond dot stickers.   Thanks, Paula!
Supplies: Stamps - SU! Bear Necessities (retired); Paper - creamy caramel, riding hood red, whisper white, SU! DP; Ink - Versafine antique sepia, VersaMarker pen, white pastel pencil, Copic & Prismacolor makers;  Accessories - SU! Top Note RAK from Vera, Nestibilities, clear EP, Stampendous diamond dots and SU! Dazzling Diamonds.
