Smiling Bear

The latest Addicted to CAS challenge is "smile":

I struggled with this for awhile and then thought of this cute Penny Black bear who has a big smile on his face - perhaps because he succeeded in finding all the gifts he needed!

I stamped him, watercoloured him, bordered with a bit of festive dp, and added to my cardbase!  A fun and quick card that is nice and flat for mailing!

Love getting Christmas cards done well ahead!  And challenges inspire me even if they're not specifically Christmas ones.

Stamps - Penny Black bear, Old Island Stamp Co. sentiment
Ink - Ranger Archival Jet Black
Paper - watercolour paper, white cs, Colorbok dp
Size - A2
Accessories - watercolour paints
