Bright Christmas Bear

I had to giggle to myself when I saw the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge today. What fun colors! And I just knew I had the perfect Christmas paper for those colors in her cupcakes. I love bright colors, and I've been playing Sparkle's Christmas Challenge for a few months now, so my brain goes to Christmas Cards on Sunday. And those cupcakes were perfect with my holiday papers!
Today's card also covers a few other challenges. It's the Pink Elephant Challenge, which was animals. I got this darling image from my friend, Tammi! Thanks so much Tammi, I loved them all! It's also the sketch for Our Creative Corner. 2RedBananas had a challenge to spell it out. I did two in one with the stickers, I spelt it out, and used a sticker as part of Sparkle's challenge today. We have High Hopes, which is bling! I'm covered on this one with glitter galore! Finally, Secret Crafter was to use three buttons, one ribbon and two designer papers.

Other supplies: Copics, fun flock, SU glitter, Martha glitter, SU sentiment, Word punch window, Ballet blue, green, but can't remember which one, DCWV papers, nesties.

Thanks for stopping by!
