Under the Mistletoe


Challenge #165 has just gone live at The Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge and here is my DT card. 

I am on a mission to use all the NBUS items in my stash and this card is the first outing for these bears (Poppy Stamps Nordic Bears).   I thought purple might be a nice change for their vests and a little gold is always a good idea for Christmas.

Once I'd made up the bears, they appeared to be kissing so I decided to put them under some mistletoe (Memory Box Mistletoe Bundle).  I cut the mistletoe from green card stock (stacked twice) but I did go around the edges with distress ink which always helps to add a little dimension.

It's rare for me to have no sentiment, but sometimes there just isn't the space and sometimes the image says it all!
