CES Challenges #64 - Bear Necessities

Hi girls. I hope you are safe in this horrible weather we are having. Yesterday was very windy. The police were warning people not to travel and all the main road bridges in Scotland were closed to all traffic. I hope it passes through soon without too much destruction or injuries. Anyway welcome to my blog - hopefully browsing though it might prove to be a pleasant distraction. I am so pleased you have found a minute to drop in.
I am entering this card into this week's CES Challenges where the theme is "Bear Necessities". There must be a bear on the card. I have inked up a Tatty Teddy by Docrafts and embossed it using the matching embossing folder. I have coloured it using my Copics. The design paper is from a Tatty Teddy CDRom and I used bazzil as a basic mount with a panel of silver mirra card embossed with snowflakes. The snowflakes are made out of glitter card with a combination of Martha Stewart and EK Success punches. The gems and glitter are from my stash. The sentiment is hand made.
I enjoyed making this card so I hope you like it. Any comments you may have time to leave for me will be greatly appreciated. I love reading your views on my cards.
Have a great crafting day and above all stay safe and healthy.
