Lili of the Valley Challenge

Third Post to meet those deadlines!
I just love these cute Christmas Bears from Lili of the Valley. I do hope they will have more Christmas designs in their August Release. This guy is called "Little Star".
This is similar to the card I posted earlier this week...liked it so much that I decided to make another one to enter in LOTV's sketch challenge.
I colored the image with pencils and OMS, the star with a gold marker, and used gold marker for the edges. Distressed the edge of card base, mats, and sponged image with distress ink. For fun, I added some fur to his cap. Had this left from a coat I made for one of my bears.  Very "Touchy Feely"

LOTV Sketch: See to the right

I think I have a good start with Christmas cards but have a way to go.
