Teddy Bear

I'm still managing to get a Christmas card a week done...this one uses the sketch from Card Patterns, and the themes of a couple of other challenges too: Just Cute Bears 'All White'; and Susie & Vikki's Christmas Club 'Presents & Gifts'. The image is 'Teddy Bear' (by Rachelle Anne Miller for Stampavie), which I coloured using watercolour pencils. For the all white background I used several Cuttlebug folders on plain white card: 'Swiss Dots'; 'Snow Dots'; 'D'Vine Swirls'; and 'Snowflakes'...distressing all of the edges, to add definition between the layers.
