A Long Winter's Nap

It's Friday!! Time for a new challenge with Christmas Stampin' All Year Long! This week we want to see you create a card with embossing. You can do either wet or dry embossing or both! I decided to go with dry embossing and used my snowflake cuttlebug folder. It's not so easy to see in this photo, it was a pretty sunny day when I took the picture.
The image I used is from Whipper Snapper Designs, I love that the penguin is sleeping on this bear! So cute!
One other thing I did add to my card is white flowersoft. I realized that when I took the picture I should have used a mix of both white and light blue flowersoft for it to show up better. BUT, I did make another discovery for the use of my copics!! I was able to color my white flowersoft with my dark blue copic pen to get a little of it to show up on the card. You can see it much better in the photo here.
I hope that you will join us for the challenge! I know that it is only March but start now and you will see that it really is less stress on you when Christmas is here. Trust me! Have a great day!
