This is a stamp set that I don't use very often, but I think it's so cute.  I'd really love to find the other SU polar bear stamp set, Polar Express, but I know that's a more rare set.  Someday I'll find one at a good price.  I haven't really been looking lately with Christmas being just around the corner.

Anyway, today's card is another clean & simple card.  I stamped my image and colored the scarves using my SU markers.  I added a few white dots on the turquoise scarf using my white gel pen in hopes that it would match my turquoise decorative paper.

The star that the polar bears are looking at is actually the negative part I got from punching my so saffron card stock using my EK Success snowflake border punch.  I placed the two snowflakes on top of each other and then on my card using a SU 2 way glue pen.

My certainly celery layer is punched using my scallop trim border punch.  My scallop oval punch and large oval punches were used for my sentiment and my ribbon is from Offray.

Once my card was finished I decided that it still needed a little something and so I decided to add a little bit of doodling using my black SU marker.  It turned out to be just the right touch and I really like the way this card turned out.

I hope you had a great day and you are staying warm.  Here in PA we are starting to receive our cold winter weather, which I'm so not ready for!
