Cute Christmas

Good morning, hope you have a great weekend lined up despite the rain which we have here at the moment!
I'm back to share my card for the new challenge over at Fantasy Stampers. This time Jan has picked the theme of


OK you rubber stampers out there, get your stamps out and join in with us in our penultimate challenge before Christmas. Don't forget we cannot accept digis in our top 3!
So without further ado here is my contribution to the DT inspiration.

This uses the stamp 'Teddy with Robin' from LOTV, isn't he cute. I must admit I do prefer cute Christmas cards over the traditional Victorian style, I find them a bit old fashioned.
The layout is based on the latest challenge at Addicted to CAS and the panel behind the teddy is from a NitWit set, which slips my mind at the moment! The robin and bear were coloured using Copics then fussy cut. The sentiment was from a Woodware set and the trusty Cuttlebug folder 'Snow' was pressed into use yet again for the top layer.

I shall also enter the following challenges:-

As You Like it challenges - Christmas, Traditional or modern ( definitely modern)
LOTV - Merry Christmas
Time Out Challenges - Embossing - option of sparkle (I chose not to twist!)
( I mirrored the sketch)

OK that's a wrap for now, so get your traditional  cute stamps out and join in at Fantasy Stampers.
