Wishing you a Beary Merry Christmas - MMSC30

HI, how are you today? Hope that you are all well. I am bringing you an extra post this week as Sunshine is sponsoring the Midnight Madness sketch this week. So make sure you head on over and look at all the goodies you could win by entering the sketch this week.

Well I just love this image that Sunshine sent me for this challenge, it is the Christmas Bear. He is so adorable. I hope that you like him.

Well here is my card using the MMSC30 sketch. We also had the added challenge the theme of wings and things. Basically anything that could fly in the air. I chose stars.

I have used Stampin’ Up designer series paper and I am loving them, Stampin’ Up whisper white card stock was used to print out Sunshine’s Stamp Xmas Bear. The base card is still that green card stock given to me by my friend. Yes I still have heaps left. The colours that I used to colour the bear are Creamy Caramel, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Real Red, Garden Green. Basic Grey. The Star Brads are from Renoir. I popped up the bear and the sentiment with dimensionals.

Here is the sketch:
