Pile It On! Challenge - Punch It!

This week at the Pile It On! Challenge, we're asking you to:

'Punch It!'

Our sponsor for this challenge is SuzyQ Scraps.

The DT were given an adorable stamp set called 'Winter' to use on our projects this week, and I chose a cute polar bear from it for my card. I coloured the image with watercolour pencils, added some Glossy Accents to the bear's eyes & nose, and 'Ice Crystal' Stickles to the snow, then matted it on to a shape cut using my 'Lacey Circles' Nesties. I used my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' and 'Ice Crystals' folders on plain white card for the background - I love white on white Christmas cards. My 'punched' element is the scalloped border along the bottom, which I created using my EK Success 'Scalloped Diamonds' punch. The snowflakes were cut using a mixture of Cuttlebug and Marianne Creatables dies, then coated with more Stickles.

Here are the challenges I've Piled On!:
For more inspiration, please check out the fabulous samples by my lovely Pile It On! Challenge DT buddies.

And....if you haven't already entered, you can find my candy on this post.
