Teddy Bear Christmas

This card combines three challenges: the Allsorts Challenge sketch & 'Torn Edges' theme; the Secret Crafter colour combination of 'Turquoise & Brown'; and the Roses on Paper Challenge to use punches with a sketch of our choice. I've made a Christmas card...although the colour combo doesn't scream Christmas...I found these gorgeous papers amongst my BasicGrey 'Figgy Pudding' pack, and I coloured my 'Teddy Bear' image (by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie) to match. I went for a snowflakes theme...embossing the brown paper with my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder, punching three small snowflakes (using an X-Cut punch), and using a Cuttlebug die for the larger snowflakes. The sentiment is from the 'Holly-Jolly' set by Penny Black, I used my Fiskars 'Deckle' tearing ruler on the snowflake paper, then distressed the edges of all of the other layers to match.
