Penny Black Christmas Card

So here is my latest Penny Black Card, haven't made one in a while, but couldn't resist colouring this cute little bear in and adding lots of glitter, which although the photos don't show, it really does seem to glitter and glisten.

I have used various Papermania papers from their Signature Collection and patchworked them onto a piece of card.  I used a little black card for matting and some lovely Prima flowers to embellish.  I dug out some of my red and white pins and recycled some plastic holly and berries from some old cake decorations that were heading for the bin.
As a final touch I popped on 4 green gemstones.
Thanks for looking, hugs and smiles to you all.

Here are the challenges that I am entering with this Penny Black Christmas Bear Card:-}
