Sweet James


I do love James, one of the cutest bears around and this was a quick Christmas card as I used one of the LOTV art pads with a Christmas embossing folder. I used a Lawn Fawn stitched square die, some velvet ribbon from Crafty Ribbons and some lovely stars from Hobbycraft. I also used my favourite pearl pen around the image.

Challenges
ABC Christmas Q for quick layout 
Simon Says make for the borders (stitched border die, ribbon border) 
Winter Wonderland embossed background 
Noor! Design UK Christmas in August
