Christmas card with Barry Bear

Hello again!
This is my second post this morning and here's the Christmas card
I said I would share when I got a photo of it :)
 I love kraft and white together for Christmas along with traditional red and green.
So for this card I stamped white dots on the base card and added strips of patterned paper then tied satin ribbon around the top and finished with a snowflake button.

This little teddy is a digi from The Stamp Fairy and he is actually standing beside a birdhouse but for this card I cut it off.  I love this wee image so much you'll be seeing more cards with him soon!
He is coloured with Copics and raised with foam pads.
I added Stickles 'star dust' to his hat and bobble on the top.
It's a beautiful morning here today and my Mum
very kindly came over to help me with the housework
and then took away a big basket of ironing to do, just so I can get my DT projects finished.
Isn't she lovely!
That's it for me today, it's been lovely to have you vist :)
See you tomorrow
Take care,
Sarah xx

Gorgeous card Sarah. Love the colours and that image is so sweet!

I saw a robin in my friend's garden today. I'm not sure I've ever seen one before. And two squirrels (but they're always there!)
