Vintage Santa With Bear Christmas Card

Hi everyone. I haven't done a bear for a while...so you know me...I had to find something with a bear to do today. I was feeling "Vintage" and pulled out this image and went to town putting it together.This sketch comes from the Sketch Challenge at Split Coast Stampers from Wednesday's challenge. I really liked the looks of it and had to try it with this lovely card. I crocheted this Poinsettia from a pattern that I made today. You will find the pattern for this in the post below this one. Please let me know if you tried it, if you liked it, or if I had anything incorrect or confusing. This shows the details of my card. I used crystal effects on the image and lots of layering. A Fiskar sunburst border punch was used as well as a sizzx die for the corner treatments. I used seed beads for the center of the Poinsettia as well as a bit of gold stickles. This shows the inside of my card. I crocheted another flower to match the front. The sentiment has been gold embossed.Here's one last picture to show all the details and layers.

Hope you have a terrific day. I would love to hear what you think!
