Cute Card Thursday Challenge 78 - Hidden Treasure!

This week on Cute Card Thursday Challenge Blog our theme is "Hidden Treasure". We want to see you hide an element/gift on your card or project. For my card I have used a cute bear from Lili of the Valley stamps that I stamped while visiting Marlene last weekend (will be buying myself the stamps at Ally Pally on the 26th). The image has been coloured with Copics using the following colours...
Bear - E51/E53
Hat - R46
Gift - R46/BG18
Shadow - C1
The papers are all Bo Bunny Press "'Tis the Season" and I have added some Bazzill cardstock for matting. The main image has been raised on 3D foam pads and the sentiment is on a double layer to create some dimension...and also to allow the velvet ribbon to run under the image. The lush velvet ribbon was from my stash and the cute snowflake charm was from The Hobby House....I have also used my Martha Stewart "Icicle" border punch just under the ribbon. The sentiment was made using my new Stampin Up "Cute & Curly" set with the matching punch, that I got on eBay USA. I finished off my card with bling from my stash and also by adding white Liquid Pearls to the fur on the hat of the image. The hidden element of my card can be see in the photo below...
My card also works with this weeks theme over on the Papertake (or as they are calling it this week...Paperfake) Weekly Challenge Blog, as they want to see fake elements on your card....I have use a punch to make a ribbon of icicles and also the liquid pearls create a faux fur element on the hat.

I adore these papers, and they are on my shopping list to buy at Ally Pally, as I have used all of the ones I received in a DT kit.
