Lili's Little Fairies- Christmas card for boys

Hi there again!  It's challenge day at

and since I am a happy new fairy, I had to come up with a Christmas Card for a Boy. That was not such an easy one for me as I had to choose between 2 stamps which actually followed the theme. I went for these cute bears, I really love this stamp.

If you think this was an easy card to make- as it appears- believe me, it wasn't:) It took me ages- more than an hour- to knit that scarf:)). I used to crochet a bit in the past but definitely lost my touch. I won't do that soon I just felt this was the right embellishing for my card, I think it turned out nice.

Stamp: Lili of the Valley- Collecting the Tree
DP: a mixture of Christmas papers- no idea which brands:(
Coloring medium: copics/promarkers
Embellishments: hand knitted scarf, charm fro Bunny Zoe, button from stash
Die-cuts; Marianne Design snowflake, nestabilities- label 3
Sentiment: Lili of the Valley
