ICSketches 42 GD card

It's my 2nd week as guest designer for Inspirational Card Sketches and another great sketch to follow. I've made another Christmas card - still need to make lots more!

I've used this adorable little bear from Elzybells, I just got him last week and couldn't wait to use him. I've coloured him with promarkers, chalked the sky background, added a little bit of glitter to the falling snowflakes and used polar white flowersoft for the snow on the ground. The papers are glittery ones from a DCWV stack, the cardstock is coredinations that I've sanded back a little. The big snowflake was made with the cuttlebug icicle die with lots of glamour dust added and a huge gem, and then I've used a little snowflake punch to make some little snowflakes, added glitter, stuck them onto some blue buttons and added some little gems. The gingham ribbon was a craft fair purchase - I went a bit ribbon mad that day!

I'm also entering this card for the following challenges:

When I was checking through the challenges to enter, I noticed that I got top 5 at Cupcake last week, how fab is that? So thank you Cupcake for choosing my card :o)
