Are you ready for cute and cuddly and a KISS!?

Good morning all

We're back with our new challenge for the month at 

Crafty Little Fairies

and our theme for this challenge is 

Cute and Cuddly

I decided to make the most of this theme and make a Christmas card
with a cute and cuddly James bear from LOTV

I decided to go a little bit on the vintage side with this one
I used the MME lost and found papers as my inspiration and coloured James to match!
Just a few embellies and die cuts to finish and it was quite a quick card to make really.
My go to bear copic colours 
I used my black prismacolour pencil to tone the colours down - I always find this works well when trying for a vintage look - gives that dark worn out look - I wonder if someone's used that on me lately lol!!

Considering I was a bit lacking in inspiration when I started this one I was pleased with how it turned out
 - its what I call a KISS card - when I have no direction go for a KISS!

To enlighten those not in the know - it's the idiots Cas card!!!

Keep It Simple Stupid!!

This is what I did...
Image - James bear from LOTV
Coloured with copics and Prismacolour pencils 
Papers - MME Lost and Found Christmas
Shaped card - Craftwork Cards
sentiment - LOTV
Snowflake die and twine  - MFT
Label die - spellbinders
Buttons (under gems) - docrafts
