Hopefully you are settling into 2018 and no longer writing 2017 on your checks!  We have another fun challenge over at The Paper Players.  This week is our Color Challenge hosted by the lovely Jaydee. Your card should incorporate Dapper Denim, Lemon Lime Twist, Tranquil Tide PLUS any other color of your choice!

I am hoping that by the time this post is published that we will be a lot warmer here in South Florida.  Tomorrow is expected to reach freezing.  Between the hurricanes and these temperatures, I am wondering if I should question my move last year from Connecticut.  No…Florida is still fantastic the majority of days!

When you look at my card above, you understand the inspiration.  Baby, IT IS cold outside.  The card was relatively simple.  I distressed an A2 panel in the required green and blue.  Splattered white paint to create the feel of snow over the entire panel. Die cut glaciers created the site line. A white embossed iceberg gives my polar bear a platform.  My bear was stamped, embossed and fussy cut, then colored in with Copics.  When complete I decided to white emboss snowflakes on his sweater to bring the theme home!  I die cut the panel to a smaller size and adhered to an A2 card base. The embossed sentiment is die cut and mounted with foam tape. The final touch was a selection of sequins and jewels.

Supplies: My Favorite Things Cool Day, My Favorite Things Icebergs, My Favorite Things Word Bubbles, Memory Box Cross Stitched Rectangle Frames, Amuse Artstamps Cold Outside, Rosie Roadshow Snowflake, Distress ink, Versafine Onyx, Versamark, Hero Arts embossing powder, Copics, Kurtake watercolors, Pretty Pink Posh and Little Things by Lucy’s Cards sequins and jewels

    Eliz your sweet polar bear in his snowflake sweater is adorable – you created a fabulous little scene with this week’s colours. I hope you find yourself with warmer weather soon – you can’t beat a bit of Florida sunshine!!

    Is it wrong that the first thing I thought when I saw your card is – where can I get a sweater like that LOL!! I love your card, very appropriate for how cold it is here in NYC right now. I love the detail on the Bears sweater too. Cx

    Elizabeth, I couldn’t wait to comment on this FUN card! I just love it! It made me smile! That snowflake sweater on that polar bear is amazing! It is so cold in Atlanta this week. I know how this little guy feels. My street is a sheet of ice. Hopefully warmer days are coming out way! Hope you are having a wonderful week! XX

    So creative and fun! Love that bear on the ice and hope you are a little warmer down there! We’re hovering in the 40’s which isn’t too bad…it’s the wind off the coast that chills you to the bone. Brrr!

  5. LeAnne says:

    LOL, this is so cute! I love his little sweater and night cap! I hope you’re having warmer weather too…although it’s still pretty cold here in PA!

  6. Jan Clothier says:

    It sounds as though your card does suit your weather! Love your starry sky and the embossed snowflakes on the bear’s jersey are wonderful!
