Teddy Bear Christmas

 This sweet image Christmas Bitty Tree Bears is from Meljen's Designs and I knew when I won this digi it would be my husbands Christmas card.  After coloring it with Copics I fussy cut, covered with Versa Mark, covered with Ranger Holographic embossing powdered and embossed, you can see it better on the close-up.  It added just the right amount of sparkle! I used my Cuddlebug dots for the background, and Nesting eyelet square on the K& Company Papers.  Eyelet and ribbons from my stash.  I hope he enjoys his card Christmas morning!

I also want to wish all my blog followers a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year.  Your inspiration through your amazing creations and  your comments on my blog mean so much.  Thank you!

This is a Christmas card I made for a co-worker for her to send out this year.  I used a Hero Arts stamp, poinsettia dry embossing folder, die cut standard circles and nesting doily circles and wired ribbon from Michaels. I am curious what other people charge for cards?  I went with $2.00.
