Tinsel Tuesday-James Bear

Welcomes to my first Tinsel Tuesday post. This is my attempt at starting my Christmas cards early. So, every other Tuesday I'll be posting a Christmas card in hopes by December 1st I'll have a nice selection ready to be stuffed in envelopes and put in the mailbox.

Here's my first card...
I'm attempting to use my Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps. So ver the next several months I'm going to be making cards using my collections


This card won:
 &  

Here's a close up of the embellishments. The pointsettias were cut from a SVG file from SVGcuts.com. The centers are from my cake supply stash. They are Wilton Stamens. I used Elegant Edges Cricut Cartridge for the little red embellishment behind the lace.
I added some glitter glue to the hat and the snow at the bottom of the image.
These  are the copics I used to color the image.

I hope you enjoyed my first Christmas card of 2014! See you back in a couple of weeks!
Now go make something beautiful!
