Pile It On! Challenge - Beary Good Friends

The theme of week's Pile It On! Challenge is:

'Beary Good Friends'
In other words...a bear and a friend!

We our sponsored for this challenge by Purple Panda Designs.

I've used an adorable Sarah Kay image (sent to me by my lovely ABC Christmas DT buddy Lacey), called 'My Sweet Lili' to make a Christmas card. I watercoloured her to match the 'Figgy Pudding' papers by BasicGrey. I embossed the gold strip with my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder, and cut some more snowflakes using a Cuttlebug die from some deep red card...adding small pearls to their centres. I'm not sure where the lace is from...I think I received in a RAK.

Here are the challenges I've piled on:
Pile It On! - Beary Good Friends
BasicGrey - Sketch
Allsorts - Gold, Cream & a hint of Red
Crazy Challenge - Tons of Shapes (Square, Rectangle, Circle & Snowflake)
Digi Doodles - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy - Lace & Pearls
One Stop Craft - Anything Goes

For more inspiration please check out the fab creations by my Pile It On! DT buddies.
