Teddy with tinsel

I have to confess that I have made quite few Christmas cards with this cute LotV teddy this year whilst neglecting some of my other new stamps, as I think this one is not only unbelievably adorable, but is also extremely easy to colour.

Main image: LoV "James the Bear with Tinsel", coloured with Promarkers and Copics, and decorated with green Stickles;
Sentiment: LotV Christmas circle sentiments;
Papers: from my stash;
Supplies: ribbon from my bloggy friend Helen; gems from my stash;
Tools: small & large classic circles, large scalloped circles and lacy circles nestabilities; Martha Stewart "Arctic Snowflake" punch.


I followed the fab sketch for this week's Papertake Weekly (I realised afterwards I had made a bit of a mistake with the placement of the ribbon so I hope the DT will be kind lol!)
