MONDAY'S GREETING CARD CHALLENGE AT THE OUTLAWZ

The theme over at the Outlawz Greeting card Challenge this week is to add a bear ... and in my opinion the cutest digi bears can be found over at Bugaboo Stamps, where I got the image featured on my card.  Meet Theodore ...

I coloured the image using alcohol markers and a white gel pen for the highlights.  I attempted to get a 'plushy' effect on Theodore's fur, and I added Stickles to the white fur lining on his hat and coat.  Perhaps it's visible better in this closeup:

I fussy cut the image, and mounted it on a diecut.  There are little silver sequins sewn on around the diecut.  The embellies I have used are red flowers and holly leaves which come from the range of embellishments that I sell. I have pictures of some of the items I sell on the third page of my blog ... click HERE.  
 If you are South African, and would like to buy .. please let me a message or send me an email ~ I can email the full catalogue to you.  Keep checking back, I have two shipments of NEW stuff on their way to me at the moment!

I would like to add this card to the following challenges:
