Have Yourself a Beary Christmas

Hi Folks
Hope everyone is okay and your week has gone well.  I have been trying to get back into a routine after the excitement of my daughters wedding.  My crafting seems to have taken a back seat at the moment but planning a crafty day today.  Hoping to get some DT work done and have a little messy play.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  Our theme for this week is:
Have a Beary Christmas
So let's see all those christmas projects featuring a bear of some kind.

Here is my inspiration project.

I have had this decoupage image for a couple of years so decided it was about time to use it.  The background is plain white card that has been embossed with a large dotty folder and matted onto gold mirror card.  A die cut was added to each corner and the image was mounted onto a die cut scalloped oval shape.  A simple sentiment and gold bow finished the card.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Our sponsor for this challenge is:

Just pop over to Winter Wonderland for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the gorgeous inspiration from my talented teamies.
