Bah Humbug - Challenge 47 - Cute Christmas Critters & St Luke's Charity Challenge - Let it Snow

I just can't believe that this is the last week of challenges over at Bah! Humbug! - and it's Cute Christmas Critters -  it doesn't seem like 5 minutes since we started way back in January!  Also over at St Luke's Charity Challenge   their challenge is Let it Snow.  I had already started on a card and it will match in with both challenges.  I have used the great Stamp Addicts set called Polar Bears SA-6019.  I just love using the polar bears as they're soooo cute!!  On a piece of black card I stamped the icicles and embossed with white embossing powder.  I stamped the star and embossed with silver detail e/p.  The polar bears were stamped with Memento ink onto white card and then cut out.  I have used a Letraset Fleximarker to add a blue tinge around the outside of the images.  I cut around the arms of the large polar bear so I could "sit" the baby one inside.  The sentiment is from the same set and I have used my Stampin Up oval and scalloped oval punches to cut out and mat onto silver card.  The whole thing has been mounted onto silver mirri which I embossed with a Cuttlebug dotty e/f.  I added a ribbon to the side and a snowflake die cut out of silver glitter card using my Whimsy Stamps Winter's Jewel 1 die.  I then mounted this onto a black DL card blank and added some snow.

Thanks for stopping by - have a great weekend fellow bloggers.
