Flourished Polar Bear

Hello there,

It's Monday so that means it's time for some inspiration featuring Prickley Pear stamps and dies .  Today I chose to use Flourished Polar Bear, Snowflake Inserts, Mini Flourish die and Snowflake Pendant die.  I will link below.  I started by stamping then embossing bear with blue embossing powder.  Then I embossed white card stock with a snowflake embossing folder which add lots of texture, added snowflake tinsel embossing powder for a snowy background.  Brrrrr!  Added the Snowflake Pendant which I stamped sentiment on and added more snowflake tinsel around the edges.  Added mini flourishes, multiples of pearls, pearl flourish and turquoise dot sparklers.  The die cut across the top is Cheery Lynn.  I love this color combo as well.  Please stop by the Prickley Pear blog to see what the rest of the design team has for you today!
