Just Cute Bears - Swirls & Bling

Over at Just Cute Bears the challenge for this week is "Swirls and Bling".  I'm using a Penny Black image called "Aiming to Please".  With all the gifts he's carrying, someone is going to be very pleased, indeed!

I colored my image with my Prismacolor pencils and gamsol and added some Stardust stickles to the package and the tree on the shopping bag.  I added a little glitter under the bear's feet to look like snow.  My background cardstock is embossed with snowflakes and swirls and I've added little pearls to the centers of the snowflakes. I used my Nestabilities to cut out and mat my image, and added some pretty red flowers, leaves, and pearl "bling" to the flowers.  I used PTI's Mixed Messages for the sentiment and tied it onto my ribbon with a little piece of floss.

Thank you for stopping by.  Be sure to check out the Just Cute Bears Challenge for more inspiration from the  DT.

Stamp:  Penny Black Aiming To Please
Paper:  Bazzill
Other:  Prismacolor pencils, gamsol, embossing folder, Nestabilities, flowers, pearls, glitter, leaf punch, tag punch, floss, ribbon
