Polar Animals

The Gingersnap Creations Challenge blog is going all wintery this month, and the theme for this week is polar animals.  After having pulled out my vellum to work on a Tim Holtz tag last week, I decided to keep playing with it.  I stamped and embossed in white on it for this card (both the image and sentiment), added some layers and brads, inked the edges and called it done!  I like how it turned out.  While I had my polar animal stamps out, I made one more card and a little penguin tag, too.  Here they are:
In addition to polar bears and penguins, I also really like reindeers images.  Do you have a favorite polar animal?  If so, come join the challenge by clicking this link. Would love to see what you do!

very cute, with a warm but "frigid" look. polar animals is a fun winter theme and your velum is a perfect material for it.
