Christmas Color Challenge

This is my second post of the day, please scroll down to see the first posting.
This week over at the Christmas Stampin All Year Long site, Maria has us creating a card using 3 colors. These colors are Sage, Chocolate and Apricot. These are not your typical colors for Christmas but somehow it still gives that warm feeling.
Here's my card and I chose to do a card layout designed by Maria Bell. This was a really fun sketch to use!! I used my nestabilities for the center of the card and used my cuttlebug folder for the base of the card as an accent.
Here is a close up look at the embossed base of the card and that I mounted the bear to make him look like he is jumping out of the box. Thank you everyone for stopping by and visiting my blog. Here are the details for my cad:
Stamps: Penny Black
Paper: Chocolate Chop, Apricot and Sage CS, white CS
InK; Copics
Accessories: Vintage brads, Nestabililites, Cuttlebug folder, 1" circle punch, 1 1/4" square
punch, eyelets
