Cocoa Bear Shaker

Hi, everybody!  I'm back with another winter holiday card!  This one is a shaker!


This cute little bear with his cocoa mug is Gerda Steiner - Warm Fuzzies Bear and I coloured him with markers.  I stamped a sentiment from SugarPea Designs - Sweet Treats Christmas below the bear.  I layered the bear on a stitched banner die-cut from pink glitter cardstock as well as a strip of the same cardstock, according to the sketch below. The patterned paper is from Crate Paper Bundled Up.  I added lots of colourful sequins inside the shaker and then finished off the card by adding a puffy sticker (cocoa cup) and three red snowflake sequins.

My card design was inspired by Card Sketch 164 at Sketch-N-Scrap, designed by sketch artist and owner Lisa:



Here's another photo to show more of the sparkle:

This bear with his mug makes me smile! :D Gerda Steiner's stamps are always so cute and this guy is just delightful. Great design, the shaker pouch looks great so big and with the sparkling banner in the middle! So creative! The puffy sticker is a lovely addiction and that paper makes me think to a warm sweater! :D
Big hugs, dear Kitty! You are always so inspiring!
