All I want for Christmas...

Is You... says the bear in the box peeking out :)

I've used an image from a Beary Special Birthday by MFT to create my Christmas card just by changing the present box colours and adding a sweet festive sentiment.

This little fella has been stamped with antique linen Distress Ink and coloured using Prisma pencils adding a few white gel pen highlights.

As its a Christmas card the ribbon and big bow had to have a coat of shimmer and the sentiment is from Clearly Besotted called Christmas Typeface.  I shaded a spot underneath to ground him as I hate my images floating aimlessly in mid-air.
