All I Want For Christmas

I've finished my Christmas bear by darkening the color of the hat and vest to a deeper, velvety holiday green.  Using my trusty x-acto knife, I've scratched out a few highlights I had managed to paint over in the eyes and on the goodies to make them pop out a bit more.  THEN, the very last thing to do was to outline all the Christmas treats and facial details with a #0 Rapidograph.  This pushes them forward, while keeping the bear's fur a bit softer.  I think I'm finally finished with the Christmas card that SHOULD have been done last October.  How's that for follow-through? 
The obvious title?   
"All I Want For Christmas".
