Red James Bear

Well, I warned you that you'd be seeing him again, but you probably didn't think it would be this soon.  I just love this Lili of the Valley stamp and I just love this sketch from Simon Says Stamp Challenge.

I am trying some different browns on these stamps and love the different looks that I'm getting.  For my card I used the James Bear stamp from Lili of the Valley as well as a sentiment stamp from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  The papers are from The Paper Studio and Paper Pizazz as well as the Cryogen White on which he is stamped.  I machine stitched the first layer (Even did the zig zag stitch, which I haven't done in a while.).  I colored him with Copics (E37, E33, E31, G28, G24, G21, G20, B000), used my MS holly border punch, and added some glitter to his hat, the falling snow and the snow on the ground.  Very quick and easy card.
