Oh Christmas Tree

Good morning, how is everyone today? Feeling relaxed and festive???
Here's another Christmas card, this time for the new challenge at Sweet Stampin', and yes you've guessed it, the theme is 'Oh Christmas Tree',
this week we're sponsored by
with a prize of an online class.
I was going to make a beautiful and elegant card with a magnificent and majestic tree...but then I remembered this QKR image I hadn't used yet....I think this bear is gorgeous, proudly bearing home his tree -a real macho hunter-gatherer- provider for his family!:)
The bear is coloured with copics, the papers are a random mix from  my stash. There's a row of masked off trees along the bottom edge. I added a stamped sentiment, some diecut trees (MB) and some holly sprigs.
Thanks for calling by, hope you find time to join us this week now that all your Christmas preparations are finished ;)
just click here to be transported to Sweet Stampin' Challenge Blog where you can check out the beautiful creations from my teamies, and of course add your own!
Hope you enjoy a nice relaxing weekend!
