Just Cute Bears - Christmas in July

The theme of this week's Just Cute Bears Challenge is:

'Christmas in July'

Well...it's never too early to get started on your Christmas cards! lol
I've used an adorable Gillian Roberts stamp called 'Teddy & Robin' on my card...watercoloured to match the 'Figgy Pudding' papers by BasicGrey. I distressed the edges, and added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug, and a white gel pen. I couldn't resist a bit of bling, and added some adhesive gems, and some Stickles to the snow, and fur on the Teddy's hat.



I'm also going to enter this card into a few other challenges:
