Pink Christmas

Oh, my!  It's November already!!  Where has this year gone?  Since it is a new month, it's time for a new challenge from Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  As always, it is a month-long, anything goes (Christmas related) challenge.  Our sponsor is the fabulous Bugaboo Stamps and the winner will receive 7 images of their choice!  Here is my card using my absolute favorite Bugaboo image: Polar Bear.  Unfortunately, I think it might have been retired as I can't find it in their store.  So sad.  
I just this this bear is the cutest ever!  And so easy to color as you really only have to color the scarf.  And add a bit of gray to highlight the white.  I had these little snowflakes sitting in my "bits and pieces" stash and am so excited to have been able to use them.  They are not traditional Christmas colors, but work perfect on this card.  (ok, I may  have chosen the card colors because I saw the snowflakes and wanted to use them). The "snow" is cut out of very glittery paper; the glitter has bits of pink in it and it looks so pretty in real life.   Thanks for stopping by, hop on over to the CHNCC2 blog for all the details and to see what the rest of the DT has come up with.
