Bear Necessities

Hi All!
Today I want to share a card I made using one of the older Lili of the Valley stamps called Bear and Butterflies.

 I made the card using some embossed navy cardstock which has a hint of gold in it and created layers using stripy DCWV paper and blue hearts paper from Trimcraft matted onto gold holographic card. I coloured the image with my Promarkers before adding a sentiment and Candi from Craftwork Cards. I seem to be a bit addicted to the gold Candi at the moment so I will have to try and wean myself off it LOL!
I also decorated the inside to match and used a sentiment stamp from Waltzing Mouse.

Anyhoo, I'd like to enter this card in the Winter Wonderland Challenge which this week is to use 'Bears/Teddy Bears', the Lili of the Valley 'Anything Goes' challenge, and the Crafty Cardmaker's 'Bear with Me' challenge.

Many thanks for popping by!
Best wishes
