Just Cute Bears & Friends - Sketch by Me

Before I get on to this fortnight's challenge, I have some exciting news about our challenges. As of this week, we are changing our name to the Just Cute Bears & Friends Challenge...so now you can use any of your cute animal stamps on your entries.

The challenge this fortnight is a sketch by me:


I've used an adorable Lili of the Valley stamp called 'Little Star' on my card. I coloured it with watercolour pencils, then added some Glamour Dust to the star, and the fur trim on his hat. The papers are from the 'Wonderful Winter' glitter stack by My Mind's Eye. I cut the snowflakes using a Cuttlebug die...then spinkled them with more Glamour Dust.


I'm also entering this card itno the following challenges:
