Winter Bear

     Linda wants to see tags for the latest Catered Crop challenge so this was a perfect opportunity for me to play with another Birdie Brown image.  This is Winter Bear with Cup.  I created my tag with a base of black and a mat of green which is really hard to see in this photo but not IRL.  I then used some kraft cardstock and embossed it with snowflakes.  I inked the raised parts with white ink and then added pearl Perfect Pearls and some white embossing powder around the edges.  I used my Chevron dies to create the strips across the center and colored Mr. Bear with Copics.  The sentiment is from Birdie Brown too.
     Lots of tags are being created right now for gifts so if you've got one hop over to the CC blog and link it up.  There's a Freckled Fawn prize up for grabs!
     I'd like to enter this tag into the following challenges:
