CAS Christmas

Yes I succumbed I've given in the all the Christmas in July goings on - but only coz I could colour up Fairy Bear from Make It Crafty.  Tempted as I was to do this in traditional colours I decided to do for pastel blues and browns.  I used ProMarkers to do this :)
I wanted a very simple card to keep him the main focus.  I've used very simple design paper from Srantoro's Gorjuss.  To take off the stark white look I've aded a little distress ink in antique linen at the edges of the image.  Added to this are some blue self adhesive gems and a piece of blue and beige ribbon to add a sentiment.

And that's it folks short and very sweet!
