Since you are a COLD sleeper then your initial setup might be just right.
I'm also a COLD sleeper and my 20* bag is good to about 30-35*.
I would reccommend that you use and additional CCF pad to go crosswise to give you better sholder coverage. you could put this under the Fleece bag that the other CCF pad is in. With this configuration I would try using the bag as a quilt (un-zip it leaving a foot box) to start with and if you find that you backside is getting cold, you can slide the bag uder you and zip up inside the bag. Of course you experience may differ from mine.
I started out using a pad and found that my body creates allot of condensation. and my bag was damp in the morning. So I don't use pads anymore. I would migrate to a UQ when you can. The KAQ or the JRB winter Nest works very well for me.
