Before and After Bear

When I started this card, I had the idea to take my sweater/hat combo from "Bundle Up" (SU!) and pair it with the bear from Itzy Inkies "Bear Hugs" (C.C. Designs). The sweater was waay too big for him, so I cut off the last stripe. This is what he ended up looking like. As I was finishing my card up, I started thinking that he looks incomplete and I should try to give him hands and feet. Well...not sure 'bout this, but here he is with his bottom half:

...maybe I should've done the mittens in a different color, huh? Oh well. He's still very cute, if I do say so myself, Lol.
I cuttlebugged the Bashful Blue layer with the snowflake folder and cut that and the pink layer with the rectangle nesties, then added Dazzling Diamonds to the flakes. The scallop sentiment over there is one stamp, "So Many Scallops" (SU!) stamped 3 times and I just cut each part out and stacked them. The blue snowflake is popped up on dimensionals. :) Kindof festivey, don'tcha think?

Oooh, he is SO cute, Kristine! Can I use him on the site?! I would love to showcase another one of your gorgeous cards. It seems I never find enough time to create for my own store even. *sigh* :) Kelly
