Beary Christmas

I needed to get one last Christmas card done this weekend, so the weekly TCP Tuesday challenge at The Cat's Pajamas, and the sketch from CardPatterns were a perfect combination for me to get the job done.  My sweet polar bear here is Big Bear from The Cat's Pajamas and I added a Cut-Ups Snowflake die as an embellishment.  (And I honestly did use the Big Scallop Cut-Ups die... it's the strip of snowflake paper on the left side!  But it ended up being covered by the center panel, and if I'd read the challenge closer and realized it was actually a major part of the challenge, I would have changed up the layout!  LOL  *smacks forehead*)



My snowflake is cut from white felt, and I applied a boatload of Rock Candy Distress Stickles to it for sparkle.  Hopefully you can catch a little of it by clicking on the photo below.  I also spritzed the circle behind the bear with Perfect Pearls, but unfortunately my poor photography doesn't show it.


So, we're down to the wire now... are ya' ready for Christmas!  :)  If not, you better get busy!

Happy stamping!
