Teddy Ornament for Love to Create Challenge

Hello to all in Blogland, I hope this finds you well. 
 It's time for a new Challenge at  Love to Create  and this week our theme is
 'Holiday Cheer' and this in my interpretation.

Thank you for your fabulous response to last weeks Challenge.  
 You submitted some stunning creations. 
Also congratulations to the winner and Top Picks.

Our Sponsors for this week are:


Our very own Mei is joining us as a sponsor on Dec 3rd!!!  

Please visit Love to Create Challenge for full details.

The Design Team have been provided with fabulous images from Bugaboo Stamps to make our design cards. Please visit us to see the fabulous inspiration provided by my talented Teamies.

List of materials used to make this card:

Centura Pearl Cardstock for approx 6" x 6" Easel card base.
Design paper is from my stash.
Wonderful image from Bugaboo Stamps Christmas-teddy-2-ornaments  coloured using my Promarker pens and highlighted in pencil with 'fur' detail on hat.
Image cut using Spellbinder die and mount cut using Spellbinder.  Edges of image distressed with ink.
Die cuts have been used to make flowers, leaves and Christmas Bells.
Green glitter card has been used for mats and die cuts.  
Berries, buttons, twine and ribbon are all from my stash.

I continue my obsession with hidden labels and this is no exception.  I have stamped a Christmas Greeting for the card and the black of the label is blank for recording of a message.

I would like to enter this card in the following Challenges:

Thank you for reading this post and for looking at my card.  I really value all of your kind comments and support.

Sending Hugs to all
