Christmas Bears

Last night was craft night and we were a bit thin in the ground due to family commitments and holidays, but, after tea and home made sticky toffee cake, we made a card using this week's sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
 I decided to go with a Christmas theme using this cute image from Meljen which I coloured with Promarkers, highlighted with Glamour Dust and then added some Liquid Pearls for the falling snow.
The papers are Papermania Naughty or Nice from several years ago, I really like the bright contemporary colours of this stack.
To finish, I made a punched strip with a Martha Stewart punch, added green ribbon, a pink bow and bright pink pearls and gems.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges -
