A Bear-y Christmas

 Yay - it's holiday cardmaking time!  Time for Fall, Halloween, Thanksgiving and kickin' up Christmas/Holiday cardmaking!  It makes the coming winter a lot more exciting!

 For my card I chose several new goodies from Reverse Confetti!  I started with the Rounded Stripe Panel die cut from Sand cardstock and 'filled in' with pattern paper from the Very Merry 6x6 paper pad.  Then I added the adorable little bear from the Christmas Bear stamp set and coordinating dies. The Sentimental Christmas 'holiday cheer' was stamped on the smaller Tag Duo die cut from Lime Green cardstock and I used Natural twine for the bow.

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
