Brrrr... is it cold in here?

Well here we are in October and the prospect of winter begins to loom before us...
 
So to warm you up a bit, here's a cute little creation for this week's Winter Wonderland challenge at One Stitch at a Time:
 
 
This week I've used Beary Dust's Hot Chocolate image. I'm rather envious of this cuddly little bear... I could just do with soaking in a bath of lovely warm hot chocolate right about now. :D I coloured the image with my Promarkers and added a few white gel pen highlights before fussy cutting it out:
 
 
I decorated my card with some pretty christmas-themed papers in warm red and cool aqua and cut a pretty snowflake frame with my Cameo over which to layer my cut-out image:
 
 
I layered the frame and my image (attached with foam pads) over a piece of pretty white lace and finsihed things off with some flowers and some dotted flourishes done with a 3D liner pen.

 
You can enter any kind of project you like into the challenge, as long as it meets the challenge theme, and entries using a Stitchy Bear product will be eligible to win our main prize. Entries not using a Stitchy Bear product will be entered into the draw to win a $3 gift voucher for the Stitchy Bear digi outlet.
