Cool bear!

I'm running really late with my post today, had such a full-on busy week looking after my granddaughters, then they stayed for an extra day as Daddy had to work this morning. They've been as good as gold and I'm going to miss them now they've gone home...but I'm shattered now, so keeping this post very short. Doesn't help that I've had some kind of 'flu virus all week and can hardly talk!
My card is for our new Challenge over at Sweet Stampin', the theme this week is 'bears' lovely, and so much scope!
I  used a set of stamps from Hobby Art, masked and stamped my scene, added a touch of colour to the bear with a copic and to the sky with distress ink. I matted it onto silver cardstock and then onto some embossed white panels. Added a bow and a die cut snowflake.
It would be lovely if you choose to play along this week, just click here for some fabulous inspiration and to add your entry.
Hoping to feel better tomorrow...will be back then to catch up on what I've missed.
Thanks for visiting

Oh Chris, what a gorgeous card! The design is lovely and really shows off that snoozing polar bear to perfection. Love the subtle colouring. But it's the details that really make this a "wow" card. The die-cuts, embossing, snowflakes and that tulle bow are wonderful additions. Thanks so much for joining our Watercooler Wednesday Challenge this week.
