It's A Bear Of A Christmas

Hello friends and welcome to my blog!  I love it when you stop by and visit me. 
I made a Christmas card with the very sweet Christmas Bear and a scene on the inside.  I used a wallet type fold and cut the top edge with a StampinUp Edglit and embossed it but then I covered it with the bear and so just a bit on each side shows.

The top is adorned with crepe ribbon from Melissa Frances and a star with Cherry Lynn die swirls.  I added some liquid pearls for interest.
My Magnolias are colored in Distressed Inks, mainly vintage photo and black soot.

Here is the inside of the card as you open it up.

A side view to see how it is folded.

The scene is done in Distressed Ink also and I tore the watercolor paper and inked the edges so it is aged and tattered.  I doodled around the scene and on the trees a bit.

The Sentiment if from Magnolia too and I see I forgot to enhance the color but it is the same as above, sorry!  I stamped it on water color paper and tore the edges, watercolored vintage photo over the entire piece and then edged it with vintage photo and black.  There is gauze underneath it also.

I hope you enjoyed my card, I love to sit and watercolor, it is so peaceful.  I just received my new stash from the new Christmas Story Collection, oh boy I can hardly wait to get into them!!
Have a great week,
PS: about my SIL  she is on some heavy drugs to reduce the swelling and size of the tumor before they can operate on it.  She is rescheduled for surgery in a few weeks,  Thank You Very Much For all Your Thoughtful Comments And Prayers!!!!
