This Monday, our challenge is to use a critter on our cards:
I chose some extra-happy polar bears for my critters and made this:
The diamond SU! DSP and silver glitter paper work so well for the sky and the snow. I used a dry-embossed white paper from my stash with a sheen to it for cutting out the bears and an unknown snippet of gray paper was used for the Paper Smooches shadows under their little polar bear butts. They are rocking their brand new identical paper-pieced Christmas sweaters! The Lil' Inker flagpole and flag are also NBUS and the sediment is heat embossed. All the ingredients are listed at the end.
I'm also linking my card with the current Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge of "Anything Goes." You can find Paper Smooches products at papersmoochesstamps.com.
And I'm always delighted to link up with my playmates at Pixie's Snippets Playground where all you have to do to join in the fun is use up some of your scraps/snippets on your card.
