Just Inspirational Challenge #17

We have a Christmas theme and sketch challenge this week at Just Inspirational Challenges.  For my card I've used a Lili of the Valley James the bear stamp I recently bought.  Isn't he adorable!  His hat fur is covered with diamond stickles and I painted his hat and the gifts with Perfect Pearls to give them some shimmer.  I punched out some flowers and used an embossing stylus to round the petals and give them dimension. 
Everones making Christmas cards already so why not make one using our sketch and come join us for the challenge this week!
