You make me smile

Hello Crafty Friends,

Wow, we are 10 days into the new year and I am already sick.  Can you believe it?   I am just glad that I am ahead of schedule with projects, etc.  Better to be ahead then to be scrambling at the last minute.  Something I try to stick to in the new year.

With that said, let me share a card I created for my card classes this month.

With winter in full effect in Southern California, I thought a polar bear was needed. 

I stamped the bear from Hero Arts on a piece of Whip Cream Cardstock with Black Licorice ink.  I then matted the image and the blue pattern paper I had in my stash onto a piece of Chambray Shirt Cardstock.  I adhered the long strip to the card base after tying a white and silver twine around the piece.
I then adhered the polar bear piece to the card using foam squares.
Lastly, I sprinkled some Sparkle Silk over the whole card and added some Journey Glaze to the eyes of the bears.

All supplies are from Fun Stampers Journey except the twine (Michael's) and the pattern paper.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day!
