My First Christmas with Daisy and Dandelion

At long last I've finally managed to ink up one of the cute Daisy and Dandelion Christmas Collection stamps I've had in a drawer for weeks.
This little character is one of the bears but I can't tell if it's Bubble or Squeak 'cos he's in disguise!

He has been coloured with watercolour pencils for a change and the fur trims on his coat and hat have been sparkled up with Glistening Snow Writer from Decoart.
The patterned papers are from an A4 pad called 'A Winter's Tale' which are also from the Daisy and Dandelion Christmas Collection and it must be said that they are good quality papers that co ordinate with each other beautifully.
The green background is simply a piece of cardstock which has been embossed with the Snowflake folder on the Cuttlebug and then cut slightly smaller than the card blank.
My favourite gold mirri card was used for matting the papers and 3D foam pads add some dimension to the various layers.
Amazingly, I think I may have managed 4 different challenges at the same time, which is virtually unheard of for me but they all made it very easy to double up challenges this week.

... Fab's Christmas Challenge #32 is to follow a sketch
...Our Creative Corner & Dutch Dare Card Challenge where the theme is "Christmas In August"
