This card got made last night in a super duper hurry. I totally let it slip my mind that I had been chosen as one of the winners in the last challenge at the Catered Crop so I was invited to be a guest designer. Some of you may remember that I was a member of Linda McClain's amazing team for a while. She has decided to close the challenge because, like many of us, there are tons of other things in her life taking precedence. I was honored to be a part of her team and I am honored to be able to share one of my cards as inspiration for the very last Catered Crop challenge. Linda, I wish you ALL the best!!!
I think I have become a bit obsessed with stitched dies. This cool tag from Pretty Pink Posh came in yesterday's mail and I wasted no time putting it to use. I also used dies from Impression Obsession and Lawn Fawn. I masked off the inside of the tag and used some Distress inks to create the sky. The sentiment is embossed in Ranger Liquid Platinum.
Now that I've talked about everything else on the card I'll tell you that the image is Purple Onion Designs Icicle the polar bear. Obviously I did not make him a polar bear. I have a couple more of their cute stamps in my stash.
