Peace Bear

Hello, everyone! I'm back again today with another holiday card.  The more I make now, the less stress there will be in December!  I aim for two a month, and this is my second one.


The bear, festive greenery, and peace word are from a JudyKaren die-cut pack. The poinsettia image is a digital freebie from Far Far Hill that I fussy-cut. I added Xmas Red Stickles to the holly berries and along the base of the polar bear, and Platinum Stickles on the poinsettia.  The embossing folder is Die'sire Embossalicious Let it Snow, and the patterned paper is from Carta Bella Snow Fun (won in a candy from Chriss - thank you!).

I was inspired by the following challenges: ABC Christmas E for Emboss and G for Glitter UE; Cardz TV 40 AG 3/3; Christmas Crafts All Year Long Flowers (poinsettia) 2/5; Crafty Gals Corner AG 1/2; Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Optional Inspired by Christmas Carol UE; Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper March UE; Creative Fingers AG 3/3; DL.ART March Linky AG 1/d; Inspiration Destination AG UE; Jo's Scrap Shack FFC226 AG 3/3; Lil Patch of Crafty Friends AG 3/3; Pammie's Inky Pinkies AG 1/3; Penny's Paper-crafty AG 1/3; Simon Says Stamp Wednesday AG 1/5; Simon Says Stamp Happy National Craft Month UE and on Facebook; The Outlawz Festive Fridays Christmas 1/3; The House that Stamps Built Repeat Impressions Anything Goes Challenge ~ M2818; The 12 Months of Christmas Link-up Beary Sweet Christmas FT 2/3; Word Art Wednesday AG w Uplifting Sentiment wk1 1/5

Thank you for looking at my card!  Wishing you a joyful day!
