Jumbo snowflakes

Another Christmas card - this time it's for Fab's big Christmas week 4: 'snowflakes' and I've gone for the giant size for Saturday spotlight 16: 'bigger is better'.

It's also another one for the 25th club on BF, this time with a polar bear rather than a reindeer.

The background paper is some that I got ages ago with an edition of Crafts Beautiful, the large lilac snowflake was part of a kit from BF, the centre is one of the crystal centres I got with my prize voucher (here). The polar bear was stamped from a stamp swap on CBC the Christmas before last (I loved it so much that I stamped a lot and still have some to use) - and he has been glittered with stickles crystal ice.

'Snowflakes' is the topic for challenge 27 on Pals paper arts and 'snow' is the Monday challenge this week on Fiskarettes, so I'll also show the card there.

I think it also qualifies for Susie & Vikki's Christmas club 3: 'non-traditional Christmas (the colours). And also for Die cut dreams 32: 'bears'.

Having tried different ways to take photos of my cards, I managed to get a little easel in Hobbycraft the other day, but now, of course (looking at this card) I realise that you can't see the bit underneath the sentiment - oh well ....!!
