Skating bears

This week at Winter Wonderland Kate has given us the fun challenge of Winter Sports so let's see those skis, skates, sleds etc. I have used a Pollycraft image which I bought last year for my hubby's Christmas card. I made that one in blue and red but rummaging through my Papermania Winter's Tale I came across this lovely red and green striped paper so that was the basis for my colour scheme o this A5 card. I love mixing stripes so added some striped ribbon. I doodled some faux stitching and some snowflakes on the image which was coloured with PMs. I added glitter flocking to the fur and glossy accents to the ice. The large scalloped circle was cut with one of my new Go Kreate dies. Snowflakes were made with white glitter card, Sizzix and Marianne dies (It's hard for me to type those two words together, you know!) and MS punch with added pearls and snowflake brad.
I am also entering my card into the following challenges:
Sunday sketch and stamp Fab sketch
Pollycraft Doodling
Crafty Calendar Winter (option snowflakes) They also have a DT call which I am entering
Bee Crafty Christmas 2
Paper Sundaes Let it Snow
Cute Card Thursday Anything Goes
A spoon full of sugar Snow, snowflakes

Sorry I haven't had much time for blogging this week but I have been busy finalising my website which has been launched this morning. I hope you get time to pop over and leave me a comment in the guestbook.
