Little Claire polar bear


Another Christmas card with one of the soon to be released Little Claire stamps, this time using the cute polar bears.  I've coloured them with promarkers, with glamour dust for sparkle.  The papers are Doodlebug, and I've gone around all the edges with a silver ink pad... unfortunately I'm impatient and it seems I couldn't wait for the ink to dry properly, so there are a few silver smudges!  I've added a silver star, which is a nestie one that embosses a pattern as it cuts - but you can't see the embossed detail on the pic.  Added a few card candy dots, but no sentiment yet - I'll add one in the bottom right of the easel when I decide who it's for.  Here's a front view....


I'm entering my card for the following challenges:
