Candy Cane Bear

Day 2 of the Christmas-in-July challenges at Catch the Bug and today they gave us a sketch to follow.

     The teddy bear and candy cane are colored with ProMarkers, then cut with a plain, rectangle die (QuicKutz.)   I matted the image with glittered CS and use a scrap piece of it for one of the banner flags.  I used gray and red CS for the bottom layers and used a scrap of the gray for the other banner flag.

     The three little trees are metallic and came from a bag of Christmas confetti.  The bells and bow were put together last year and were waiting in my Christmas stash.  The sentiment was done with a stamp and then heat embossed with metallic-red EP.  The ribbon was from my stash.
