ATS Challenge Card #23

I love these All That Scraps Design Team Challenges! Every week it is something new to keep me on my toes. This weeks #23 is a color challenge and I have to say that these are always a favorite on my list. The colors reminded me of Christmas, so of course that's what I had to do. 

I am limited on the number of CC Designs Stamps, but I found a way to make the little Bear from the Bear Hugs set into a Christmas scenario. I took out my Scallop Circle Nestabilities and my Cuttlebug to create the wreath around the bear. Then I thought that the wreath looked a little plain, so here is where I got creative. I used the little fish from the Summertime set to make the branches. I think that you don't notice them so much unless you stare at them, but I could be wrong. What do you think? The rest is pretty simple. Enjoy!
Stamps: CC Designs Bear Hugs and Summertime Fun
Paper: Old Olive, Bravo Burgundy, Sahara Sand, Whisper White and Old Olive DSP
Inks: Black StazOn, Sahara Sand and Bravo Burgundy
Accessories: Old Olive Poly-twill ribbon, Rhinestone, Scallop Circle Nestabilities, Cuttlebug, Brads, Dimensionals and adhesive
