James Returns with More Gifts

Welcome!  I always enjoy playing with James the Bear Bearing Presents, a stamp from Lili of the Valley.  I have owned this stamp since at least 2010 or maybe longer.  Although in the past I have added a lot of paper and embellishments to James, I decided to keep him clean and simple for this card.  So, James is the star of this project.  He was stamped with Memento Black Ink on GKD Heavyweight White CS and colored with Copics.  I did add some White Crystal Nuvo drops to his hat. The image was matted with Grass Green CS and attached to foam before adhering to Red Velvet CS. Sentiment is Gina K from Joyful Holiday set.
