Joanne is our hostess over at CCEE Stampers for the first two weeks in December, before we take a break. She tells us that today is National Roof Over Your Head Day. It is a day to be thankful for those of us who are fortunate enough to have a safe home to live in AND to think about those around the world who do not. To mark this day, our challenge today is to make a card with a house/building of some sort on it.
I used LOTV Igloo bears and sentiment. The bears were stamped on Bristol Board and coloured with Polychromos pencils. I used a circle to cut them, and then trimmed the bottom off, layering it onto a Lacy Circle cut from glitter card.
The base is white card which was used to mop up some blue homemade mister, I embossed it with TE Snowfall, and added a silver glitter border down each side. Silver ribbon along the bottom, overlayed with IO foliage, and Stickles and Liquid Pearls for the berries. The sentiment is a Spellbinders banner, edged with silver Stickles and popped up in the centre with foam. I added a whole bunch of foliage in green and shimmer white in the two top corners, and tucked some little red gem berries in.

These adorable bears perched on their igloo was a wonderful choice for this challenge!! Love your coloring and the embossed, splattered snowy background, but especially love the punched silver borders - Awesome, Sabrina!
