Thankful for Daddy Bear

I am making this as a special Thanksgiving card for my husband whom I  affectionately call "Daddy Bear". The idea of this card has been churning around in my head since I read the challenge at the Scrapping Cottage Blog to create a project using frames and  use any Cottage Cutz die. I do not have any frame dies so I had to be creative and  use a die to make my own. I used the Cottage Cutz Acorn Embellishment Die and made my frame with leaves and branches cut with the die. I used the frame to highlight the Bear cut with Cottage Cutz Bear Die. Added some Acorns cut with the die.
Supplies:
Cottage Cutz Dies and Spellbinders Circle Die
Papers: GKD Ivory CS, Pumpkin Spice CS, Echo Paper Stripe from Apothecary Emporium, Brown Texture Sticker Paper
Stamp: Mark's Finest Papers Sentiment from Country Thanksgiving
Versamark ink and Ranger EP Pearl Copper
Distress Inks: Ranger Crushed Olive, Wld Honey, Brushed Corduroy

Challenges:
Scrapping Cottage Blog: Create with a frame. Used Cottage Cutz dies mentioned above.
Crafty Catz: Anything Goes.
Speedy the Cat's Friends Challenge: Fall or winter theme. Fall theme used with Country Thanksgiving Sentiment.
Our Creative Corner: Masculine card. Made for my husband.
Craft Your Passion:  ANYTHING GOES + BROWN
Kaboodle Doodle Challenge: Colors of fall.
Lollipop Crafts: Thanksgiving / Fall
Bearly-Mine Challenge:  One for the Boyz...for my DH.
