SugarPea Mix Up Challenge November 2019

Just that a looky-loo at this gorgeousness... go ahead, take a moment - I'll wait. 
 
Is that not the prettiest bowl of baubles ever?  I had to try to recreate one of them for Mix it Up Challenge #61 - guess who came out to play again?  tee hee…
 
Inside:  At Christmas time?  It's more than I can bear!
 
Now.  If I didn't have to be all perfectly straight, I could have hung that bauble over to the left and I could say I used the Sketch, as well as the photo … oh well, I'm happy - and btw it's my birthday, so that's all that matters today - right? lol
 
Did you notice where his scarf landed? 
 
 
I'll be back with my final teaser card for 2019 in a bit … see you soon!

Need to hone my observational skills because I didn't notice his scarf until you mentioned it. Clever, Birthday Girl! Good to know aging hasn't dampened your considerable skills.

LOVE this awesome card! I keep thinking I need this set. Little bear works wonderfully on the ornament and I adore the silver sparkle and the soft gray plaid that looks just like cozy flannel! Hope you had a fabulous birthday!!

Such a beautiful bauble with an adorable bear, Michele! I love that you masked the bear and white heat-embossed the outlines instead of pasting a die-cut bear. The soft green sponged bauble looks wonderful with the light gray buffalo check. And who else could think of placing the scarf there?

I am SOOOO far behind in my commenting, but just had to stop by and tell you how much I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this card!! The soft plaid background and the delightful bear on the ornament (along with the scarf wrapped around the top of the ornament!) all work just perfectly together!! FABULOUS card my friend!! Hugs. :0)
