Hello!! Finally, a chance to finish a card!! I'm so happy to be posting today! AND, so glad you came to see! thank you so much!
 This is COZY CHRISTMAS BEAR from MAGNOLIA-LICIOUS, Diana's wonderful store with all the great Magnolia stamps, Scor-tape, so many, many dies and some great sales and a frequent shopper program for very nice savings!!  Here's the linkg to #246 COZY CHRISTMAS BEAR
I've used Spellbinders Labels # twenty-tight for the base of my card. TIP: If I don't have the right sized increment for my layers I just cut the larger size and trim off the 1/8" border around the die cut.
I love red, cocoa and aqua for Christmas cards!  There may be more of these colors to come! My dp is from Papertrey Ink.
I've colored the adorable little bear with copics in the following colors: bear E30, E31, E33 and E35.  Reds are R14, R46 and R59.  His tummie, ears and toes have a little R30 added to the E30.  I used a glaze pen for a shiny black nose and eyes.  There's a little BG10 on his hat and fur.
The faux stitiching is also done with the black glaze pen. I used some opal liquid pearls under my bear and then sprinkled glitter on it while it was wet.  The rest of the sparkle is from my favorite stickles-star dust! The bear is made 3-d in my usual way, but since I haven't mentioned it in a while I will here.  I color, cut and curve the image a bit.  Then I put dimensionals in the middle of the image. Finally, I add some good liquid glue on the edges of the image so the edges will stick to the base.

Guess that's it for me today! Don't forget there is always one (or two!) challenge going on over at the  Magnolia-licious Highlites blog!  We'd love for you to join in!  AND, there's also a Magnolia-licious Challenge Blog with more! Both challenge blogs give away super special surprises to random winners!!
Have a great day and again, thanks for coming by!!

So sweet. Love the shape. And your coloring is sooo...good.

I love the shape you chose to use! Your bear is colored so well! I wish I could do animals that nicely (or even half as nicely). I especially love the soft paper behind the bear. It just accentuates the bear so much more.
