Elzybells Teddy and Snowman Christmas card

Hi blogging friends Free Smiley Courtesy of www.millan.net

I have another Christmas card to share with you today using a very cute little bear and snowman:

Isn't this just the sweetest little image?  I coloured it with Faber Castell + Derwent Inktense watercolour pencils and a small, round paintbrush.  I added some dots to the teddy's scarf with white acrylic paint and added my usual Cotton White fun flock mixed with Crystalina glitter using Designer Dries Clear adhesive to the snowman's hat and the snow around + underneath image which is my favourite way of adding some texture.  Here is a wee close-up:

And here is another angle so you can (hopefully) see the dimension on the card a little:

I added the bow in 2 separate elements and the bow itself was made with my Bow Easy.

Finished off with some My Favorite Things snowflake diecuts which are popped up on dimensionals.  I didn't think it was necessary to add a sentiment as I thought the wording on the ribbon would suffice.  This is my last piece of that ribbon (sob!).


I am entering my card in the following Challenges -
