Pile It On! Challenge - Cuddly Critters

This week's Pile It On! Challenge is a nice easy one:

'Cuddly Critters'

Our sponsor this week is the fabulous Stamp Fairy


Prize: $10 to spend in the Stamp Fairy store!

I seem to be in Christmas mode at the moment...nearly every card/project on my blog for the last week or so has been a Christmas one...so, keeping up that theme, I've used 'Barry Winter - Skis' from the Stamp Fairy. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then added some sparkle to the snow with some Stickles. For the background I used a couple of shades of blue Core'dinations card, embossing them using my Cuttlebug 'Swiss Dots' and Sizzix 'Snowflakes' folders, sanding over the edges to reveal the lighter core. I distressed all of the edges, and added some twine (Dovecraft 'Tea Party'), a die cut snowflake (a Marianne Designs die) and a button (threaded with more of the twine).


Here are the challenges I've piled on:
