Sitting Pretty

Well, here it is June already!  Time sure flies when you're having fun. : )  Since it is the beginning of the month, it is time for another challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always, we are an anything goes (Christmas related, of course) month long challenge.  Our sponsor each month is Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice.  Here is my card using the adorable "Polar Bear" image:
Isn't he just the cutest thing ever?  And I think he looks even more cute sitting on this little snow hill. For the "snowy" background I inked up my embossing folder with white ink and then embossed the blue panel.  It wasn't as dark as I wanted, so I used a white gel pen to highlight some of the dots to look more like falling snow.

This works really well - I never manage to get the embossing 'letterpress' technique to work right lol. Adding the pen to some of the snowflakes helps too. Brill card.
