DT card for Sketch 'n' Stash Challenge

Hello again everyone, as promised I am here with my second card.

For this challenge we are sponsored by the wonderful Crafty Individuals.

I have used one of the older James Bear stamps from LOTV. I have added glossy accents to the baubles and star and lots of red stickles to the tinsel.

How sweet is this precious bear?! :o) He just makes me smile, Sue. The Glossy Accents usage is so effective on the baubles and I naturally love the super sparkly tinsel. :o) The papers are stunning... so warm and fuzzy. :o) The festive party banner is so brilliantly used (and designed) here, my talented friend. Beautiful layout, filled with so much to enjoy. I hope your week is off to a happy start. :o)

Hugs and blessings!

Hi, Sue! I hope you will forgive me for not leaving comments on each of your wonderful cards. Love your little doggy, and the pretty Christmasy designs. This little bear is SUPER SWEET! Love the off-kilter background panels, cute DPs, and round, jeweled banner. The texture in the garland is very pretty! You always use those tiny little details (like the little embossed Christmas tree with the heart on top), and that REALLY little bow. Amazing - and I really appreciate the time you put into each of these creations. hugs, de
