Teddies little Christmas friend

Good evening every one. I have not been about for the past week because we have just had a major office relocation and time has been limited. I've been covered in dust most of the time so not felt much like crafting. But today finally all of the crates arrived at our new location and all of the important boxes got unpacked so back to normal!!!!!!!!!!! I will endevour to be a better blogger and shall be around over the next few days to have a look at your lovely creations.

Any way I managed to put together a Christmas card and would like to share........

I have cracked open a new Christmas pad from First Edition for this one. The pad is called Christmas Joy. I think it is going to be one of my favourites. As I was getting into the Christmas spirit I had to use this brilliant newembossing powder from Stampendous. It's called shabby white embossing enamel and I must say I love it. It really made the chipboard pieces on the card pop.
 The cute image is from Lili of the Valley (another of my addictions!!)

I've coloured the image using Copic's in the following colours:
R29, R27,R24,R22,R20, E37,E35,E33,E31,E30
E53, E51,E50, YG95, YG93
