Hugs - Color Dare #596

This is my Design Team project for ColorMyHeart Color Dare #596 "Black & Brown + 1 Color" combined with our sister challenge at Try a Sketch On Tuesday #644. My selection was using Toffee as my brown, Black and my + 1 color is Candy Apple. 

All the panel borders were cut first using black cardstock to help me with my selection of where I would use my red + color.  I chose the Teddy Bear for my focal point and using Toffee patterned paper. The Teddy Bear was stamped two times... first directly on the cardstock, the second used to fussy-cut the head, arms and legs separately, piece and adhere to full image on cardstock with glue and 3D thin foam tape rounding the Teddy Bear.  Added a red bow for pop of my + color.  

A pretty patterned Toffee background was selected and adhered to the black border cut.  To break the two brown panels decided to use more than just the pop of red. anc cut a panel using a Mix-In Candy Apple patterned paper, adhered to the black border cut and adhered to the background.  The Teddy Bear panel was added to the black border cut.  Two hearts were cut, one in black, the other in the same Candy Apple patterned paper.  The red heart was off set a little bit to show a black edge, overlaped the heart on focal point panel using 3D thin foam tape. The double cut Hug sentiment was added to the top, glued and hugging the heart.    

On the inside of the card, just added a thin black border with the Candy Apple patterned paper.
