Snowy bear for someone special!!

Exciting news today!! I have been invited to be the guest designer at Creative Craft challenges this month - how cool is that! Thanks for inviting me ladies - big smile.

Their challenge this time is a recipe:
1 ribbon , 2 papers &
3 brads

So here's my card, it's quite a special one as it's for my husband - it's OK he doesn't read my blog.

I've used my new James Bear in the snow from LOTV, I just fell in love with him as soon as I saw him!! I've coloured him with promarkers and then added another of my favourite things at the moment - Doodlebug white crushed velvet flock and glamour dust to his hat and the snowflakes. The snow on the gound is glamour dust and the snowflakes have a little stickles added too. It is Christmas, so I figure you can't have too much glitter!!

Here's a closer look:

I've used some papers from last year, the back one is from Dovecraft and the blue dotty one behind James is from my scrap box, could be papermania?? The white pearlescent card is embossed with a snowflake cuttlebug folder (used this a lot this year!!) and the gorgeous ribbon is from The Art of Craft, it's hard to see but the silver snowflakes are slightly raised which adds more texture. The little tag is from a Forever friends kit, the smaller snowflake is made from a cuttlebug die and the larger silver one is by making memories - I've had these for ages but never actually used one before - lol!! The white sugared brads are by Doodlebug.
Hope you like James in the snow!!
