Christmas Jumper Bear

Morning Folks!
Hope everyone is OK? 
I'm here with some mid month inspiration for the challenge over at Ready Teddy Go where our theme is 

CONTEMPORARY CHRISTMAS
so modern cards including a bear/ teddy of course!!

Here's my card, another attempt at CAS. I've used a very cute digi which I discovered at Birdie Brown just before the store sadly closed (talk about coming late to the party!!)
 I've coloured him with promarkers and then paper pieced his jumper and hat. Looks like his Nan might have knitted him a new jumper for Christmas!! I'm thinking he is about to enjoy some cocoa!! Couldn't resist adding a pom pom to his hat:
The papers are a mixture of very old DCWV and First Edition, none of them are actual 'Christmas papers' but I think they work?? The wooden sentiment is by Dovecraft, I coloured it over with a promarker so that it matched better. 
Thanks for visiting today and please pop over to the Ready Teddy Go challenge blog to see the fabulous inspiration from the design team and to check out this lovely prize:
