Christmas bear for CHNC challenge 171

CHNC 171 is all about red ... I'm asking to see a little or a lot on your Christmas creations - please join me.

My first design card has used  'Christmas bear' kindly supplied by one of today's sponsors, Robyn'sFetish Digital Stamps And More, coloured with spectrum noir pens. The background paper is an offcut of some left over from a 12 x 12 My Mind's Eye signature Christmas glitter book papers by Jen Wilson. The square behind the image is DCWV, the stocking is  stray one left from a Kanban kit and the sentiment circle from Craftwork cards.

The card is based on the optional sketch given for Digi sketch : bears:
