Little Polar Bear

This is the second Christmas card I managed to make. I was looking through my rubber stamps and found this long forgotten Anita's polar bear which I bought a few years ago but can only remember using once before. I blame the digi revolution!!! I also unearthed my black pigment ink pad, clear embossing powder and heat gun! This year I'm trying to make more Christmas cards than I usually manage and this was a quick and easy one.


I've used:
DP is from Dovecraft's Winter Wonderland pack.
Rubber stamp is an old Anita's one which I stamped using black ink and clear embossed.
White glitter card for mat cut with Nesties scalloped square.
Snowflakes cut from white glitter card using my snowflake die and Cuttlebug.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Sarah Hurley #8 - Snowflakes
Moving Along With The Times #64 - Christmas
Pixie Dust Studio #40 Fur or Feathers - Use an animal
Sew Many Challenges #27 - Embossing Wet or Dry
Totally Gorjuss #48 - Wild Thing (any animal)
Crafty Calendar #12 - Blue with the option of flowers (I've used snowflakes)
