James Bear Sledding or Sledging.

This is my second post for the day. I have made this card for many challenges but mainly for Lili of the Valley since I am using their sketch and stamp.
Love this bear James as he is sledding down the hill.  I can use this for a winter birthday for a boy or even a Christmas card.
I stamped the image with black ink and colored with Copics, sponged the sky blue, and added stickles for snow and some dots of stickles for snowfall. I am not happy with how the stickles and silver on bows photographed but trust me it looks good in real life. I cut out image with Nesties rectangle die and edged the image with silver. Used a Base Card of Oyster pearl matted with blue. Used hand made paper in cream that I punched with a  lace design. Added some circles cut with dies and layered with punched snowflakes and more snowflakes decorated  with rhinestones, glitter pens, and silver pen. Finished with ribbon and bow topped with metal snowflake.
