Polar Couple

I have another Christmas card to share today...using a cute polar bear stamp from the 'Christmas Outdoors' set by Penny Black. I coloured the image using watercolour pencils...adding some sparkle to the icy ground using a Wink of Stella pen. The papers are from the 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate Paper...I distressed the edges, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment is from a set by Lili of the Valley, and the adhesive pearls are from Hobbycraft.
