For this card I stamped the bear image using Rich Cocoa Memento ink onto a light blue card stock. I mounted it onto the dark brown card stock and then stitched around the edges. The "bear with me" sentiment is all in one line, but I chose to stamp it this way, utilizing my stamp-a-ma-jig, then punching it out and mounting it onto a brown circle. I used linen thread behind the sentiment and added a little knot of it to the I forgot panel as well.
