JUGS color challenge meets Purple Onion!!

Hello!  I've been a bit absent lately due to extreme holiday craziness!  I'm sure you all know what I mean! Anyway, school is finished for 2013 and I'll have some time for fun!!  For starters I've made this smaller card as a thank you.  The finished card is 3.5" x 5"~ a cute size, but still room for your note. :)
It's Saturday, which means a new JUGS challenge!  Please check out the inspiration HERE!

I've gone a bit crazy over Purple Onion design stamps lately, since seeing a board on Pinterest!
Here's the link to the Purple Onion Designs board.  I've mostly bought designs from Stacey Yacula at this point, but there are many, many other stamps that are really great!
I stamped my kraft card base with white snowflakes (retired SU stamp).  I measured white card stock to fit my card base and rounded all corners.  Then I covered each of my torn pieces (3) with glue and prima fine glitter. While that dried I stamped my polar bear and then colored him with copics. The edges of the card are shaded with soft suede and then a bit of twine (crochet yarn, actually) and DONE!

Please join us for this color challenge (reds, neutrals and browns) at JUGS this week!!
And do check the blog for all that inspiration!
Thanks for coming!! On to what I hope will be a productive day!! (And, for YOU, too!)

That image is so cute and colored to perfection! Love the scene you created and the effect of the sponging around the edges gives this a nice, soft glow. Merry Christmas!
