Angelic bear

This is for sketch 40 on Cards and things:

The background paper is Forever Friends Christmas Glow, so is the strip across the middle which has been embossed with Cuttlebug swiss dots. The spiky circle was cut with a nestie using a piece of BG sugar rush. The angelic bear is a FF 3D element.

There seem to be more and more 'Christmas in July' challenges atm - I'm loving them because I need to make so many Christmas cards that it's enthusing me to get more done - at the last count I had made 106. This is now my 8th card for this month's 25th club on BF forum (only two more 'angel' cards to make).

So I'm linking for these challenges:

Magical crafts 19: 'Christmas in July'
Ooh-la-la 58: 'Christmas in July'
