CottageCutz Vintage Tin Ornament

Hello Papercrafters!  No doubt about it!  I just adore this sweet little Bear!  He is from the Homemade Christmas Gift Set along with that sweet Poinsettia.  I was in the Dollar General the other day perusing the Christmas Ornament isle and came across these vintage tart tins.  They are adorable, so I had to buy a selection of the different colors.  I knew I was going to alter them to my personal taste.
I used watercolor paper to create my bear.  Not only do I love the way it took the distress ink, but I love the texture it has.  It just adds a little "extra" to the attractiveness of the bear.  I also used a nice chunky glitter for his hat and rhinestones for the holly berries.
My bells are from my stash that I had back in my sewing days.  They have to be 20 years old....lol  They were tarnished somewhat.  I just painted them with glue and rolled them around in silver glitter.  I love how they look. 
I just love the Winter Pine Branch die.  It is my go-to die for wispy pine branches this season.  The little snowflakes were punched with a Martha Stewart punch.    Thanks for stopping by today.  I appreciate it.  Happy Crafting!  Here are the dies I used:
