One Stitch at a Time Challenge 188

This week at One Stitch at a Time, our challenge is to use a digi! Easy!

We're sponsored by
See the challenge blog for details.

This time, I got to choose an image from Sentimental Susan for Hazel, Shell and Lisa. I chose Bear Guitar, as I've got two guitar-playing sons and it appealed to my sense of humour.
I added the wording in Photoshop Elements, printed, and coloured with Promarkers. For the background, I embossed some pearlescent white card using folders from Crafter's Companion and, I think, Papermania. I matted with blue to match the text, and die cut some snowflakes from the same card using Cuttlebug and Spellbinders dies. I finished the snowflakes with glitter glue to add a bit of sparkle.

I hope you can join us this week.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Crafty Sentiments where anything goes,
Party Time Tuesdays where anything goes,
Lady Anne where anything goes with a stamp,
Crafty Hands where anything goes,
Sister Act where anything goes,
Aud Sentiments where they want Christmas sentiments,
Moving Along with the Times where they want no patterned paper

This is such a great card Josephine - I love the crisp snowy scene that you have created for your guitar playing Polar Bear and the blue snowflakes are so striking. You could show this card to your sons as forewarning to them of the consequences for not playing ALL your favourite music. Love Ingrid xx
