Punch Art - Cute Xmas Teddy

I usually start with where I copied the idea or design from - not this time !!  I made this dear little chap up all by myself !  The teddy punch art list is as follows :

Head - 1¾" SU Circle
Ears -   ¾"  SU Circle and ⅜" Circle - dark brown - cut 2 of each
Antlers - Cottage Cutz - Santa w/Reindeer
Body -  Nestabilities Classic Circles Large - 4th largest approx 2⅜".  Cut 2nd one in patterned paper and trim.
Hands - 1½" circle,  ¾" circle in dark brown - cut 2 of each.   ⅛" circles - punch 6 in dark brown.
Sleeves - in patterned paper using Nestabilites Classic Circles Large - the smallest die.
Feet  -   1" circle, ⅝" circle in dark brown - cut 2 of each.  ³⁄16" Crop-a-dile circles - punch 6.
Cheeks - I punched out a circle of just under ⅜", tossed out the circle and used the balance as a template.  I used Distress ink, Tattered Rose, and added 3 white dots with a gel pen.
Face  -  Peachy Keen Stamps PK 135 Medium Bear Facial Features for the eyes and nose.  The mouth was from PK 754 Critter Faces Set A Medium - it was part of a face so I blocked out the part I did not want and extended the line between the mouth and the nose with a black pen.
Fence -  Woodware Peeking Over stamp set, coloured with a variety of Distressed inks until I found the right colour.

A word of warning here - I have used only metric for the past 40 odd years so my understanding of inches is fairly limited.  I have to count the little stripes to try and work it out, so if the above looks wrong please alter it.  Normally DH helps but with me having no voice it is annoying to have to bbm him for every little thing. 

For the background I could not find the right paper so I looked through the embossing folders and came across this Craft Too one.  I used Momento Ink - New Sprout on the folder and was delighted it worked first time round.  The sentiment is from the JustRite Christmas Mini Sentiment set and it was punched out using SU Word Window punch.
