Polar Bear Christmas

This is the first time I've played along with the Freshly Made Sketches blog. I love making cards to a sketch. They really get my wheels turning and I really love Linda's design

I just got a Polar Party and couldn't wait to use it. Here is the supplies I used.
Papers- Pretty In Pink, Chocolate Chip, and Whisper White
Inks- Chocolate Chip and Whisper White
Stamps- Polar Party, Serene Snowflakes, and  So Many Scallops

I really like how this card came out. I gave the polar bear just little shadowing and decided to emboss the pink strip with polka dots instead of the snowflakes as planned. I added a little flocking to the scarf and hat. I think if I lived where they live I would want fluffier clothes. Wouldn't you?

Well I hope you like my card. Thanks for stopping by. HAPPY STAMPING
