ABC Christmas Challenge - B is for...

I have another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge today, where the theme is:

'B is for Bears...with one or more of: Bunting, Banners, Brads, Bling, Buttons, Bows & Blooms!'
Phew...what a mouthful! lol

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

Our very own Lacey with her store Stamp and create:

and a whopping prize



with this fabulous prize

I've used an adorable Lili of the Valley bear on my card called 'Present Pile'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'Countdown to Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye...I distressed the edges a little, then added faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The sparkly brads are by American Crafts.

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