Christmas is coming !!!

I thought it would be a good idea to keep up with my Christmas card making to save a rush at the end of the year.  This is my first one for 2014.

This is James the bear from LOTV, coloured with Promarkers.  I have embossed the background with a 6x6 holly folder from Crafter's Companion, then added die cut flowers and leaves.  The sentiment is also from LOTV.

This is what I intended to do, but of course, my good intentions fell by the wayside.

Such a cute design. Love the holly embossed background and the way you have offset the two different matting shapes. Great colouring too

Happy New Year

Great card Pamela and if a little bear could ever be considered regal, then James is! Love all the gold, the embossing and the sparkle too.
