Busy getting some last minute Christmas cards done

I recently purchased some dies from Simon says stamp and this bubble breeze die really caught my eye.  It really makes me think of snow blowing in the wind which fits with the weather we are having here in Vancouver Canada.  Also along with the MFT stamp and die set I bought on sale from a local store.  I love how this turned out and will be making  few more over the next couple of days.


The base layer of the card was die cut with the bubble breeze die then stamped the sentiment using  a MISTI, the bear is water coloured using zig markers and clear Wink of Stella.  I wanted to make the snow sparkle so I used the Wink of Stella on the bubble die although you can't see it in the picture.
The sequins add just a little more sparkle.
I am enter this for the following challenges
