pink Christmas adventure part 3

Having been convinced by Pink Christmas, for Breast Cancer Awareness at Jingle Belles, that I can stand a little pink in my Christmas card making, I thought it couldn't be too hard to add a bit of pink to a Teddy Bear for Holly Jolly Christmas.  The problem with that thought was, I don't seem to own any Christmas teddy bear stamps, not even any digital stamp images. Unlike moose, teddy bears make sense to me as a Christmas icon, since they're sweet gifts.  But - I have a Christmas moose digital stamp, and I have no Christmas teddy bear stamp.  Furthermore, I have no teddy bear stamps of any kind!  Well, I've never been that easily deterred from a plan (adding pink to all of the Christmas challenge cards I make before October 15) - so I declared that this little koala is just a variation of a teddy:
stamp sets - Kind Koala, Tin of Cards, Peaceful Wreath, Snow Place; ink - Crumb Cake, Soft Suede, Mint Macaron, Watermelon Wonder; card stock - Watermelon Wonder, Blushing Bride, Whisper White, Crumb Cake, Mint Macaron; envelope paper - Watermelon Wonder: Big Shot with Wonderful Wreath and Snow Friends framelits and Decorative Dots embossing folder
After I stamped and cut him and gave him a pink candy cane, I was at a loss for how to display him until I saw the snowflake (doily) on the Tuesday Morning Sketch. As you can see, though, the snowflake morphed into a wreath before the card was completed.  I'm pretty pleased with him, overall.
