Hints and Tips
I decided James should be a white bear to make him more festive so I just used shades of grey to add shadow to his fur.  Instead of using fine glitter for the tinsel I used a long shredded one.

This card was entered into the following challenges:
Moving Along With The Times: Merry Christmas.
Stampin' For The Weekend: Challenge 8 Sparkle and Shine.
Totally Paper Crafts: All Buttoned Up.
