Krafting for Christmas

Hello everyone, hope all is well with you all.  I'm currently happily working my way though my Chrimbo paper packs and new Christmas stamps ... I've never really liked kraft card and paper in the past but this year I have really got into them ... and they co-ordinate so well with teddies colour-wise :-)  I'm really enjoying experimenting with different accent colours to go with kraft and white ... here's one with aqua shades.

Stamps: LotV "Teddy With Penguin" and "Christmas Grungy Sentiments";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; glamour dust on snow and penguin's hat;
Papers: LotV "Krafty Christmas";
Supplies: button and gems from The Hobby House; twine from The Ribbon Girl;
Tools: small, large and scalloped circle nestabilities; Martha Stewart "Large Arctic Snowflake" punch; Cuttlebug "Snowflakes" embossing folder.
