Furry Friends

First of all, I have a couple new followers and I'd like to say welcome and I'm glad you are here.
A new month and a new challenge at A Die for a Sketch.   The only rules for entering the Challenge is simple - you need to follow the sketch and use a minimum of one die cut on your project.  Easy, huh?  Here's the sketch:
 I love this image, I really do.  It is Furry Friends  from Sugar Nellie and I adore that little bear.  Now when I see the pic, I wish I'd added just a bit of sparkle to the snow and I will do that but this pic will have to do funny how you don't notice those things until you are posting the pics, or at least that is what always happens to me.  The papers are from my favourite collection of all time which is Bo Bunny's Father Christmas collection.  This stuff just springs to life when you add some sparkle.  I suppose I'll have to start hoarding it soon...  because I have only a few pieces left.  The snowflakes are Whimsy's Layered Snowflakes; the image coloured with Copics and I've added some gold Stickles to the edges of the papers and Glamour Dust on her snowsuit.  The pearls are done with a Viva Pearl Pen.
