Paper Play

Paper Play Sketches #32, that is.  Even though this sketch intimidated me at first, once I got going, I really got into it.  Here's the sketch:
And here's what I did with it:
To create this card, I finally decided to cut into my 6x6 Perfectly Plaid Winter paper pad from Lawn Fawn (GASP!)  I've been hoarding that and the Perfectly Plaid Christmas pad since I bought them last fall.  I guess they won't do me any good at all if I don't use them, right??  So I chose which patterns I wanted to use, and (luckily) found a matching gray card stock in my stash.  That cute polar bear is from Bugaboo; find him here.  The sentiment is stamped in Memento London Fog ink.
12 Months of Christmas Link Up #25:  ATG, or optional "Out with the Old, In with the New" theme (new, used my recently acquired MISTI to stamp the sentiment; old just about everything else)
ABC Christmas:  "A" for ATG, or "B" for something beginning with "b" (blue, bear)
Christmas Card Challenges #5:  ATG or optional "Snow" theme
CHNC #318:  ATG or optional "No Sentiment" theme
Crimbo Crackers #125:  Something Cute
January Rudolph Days:  ATG Christmas
Cutie Pie #107:  Winter Warmers
HIMCR #286:  Any Holiday
Crafty Sentiments:  Use Dies (Spellbinders used to cut out sentiment layers)
Come and Get It:  3 or more layers
Thanks for joining me today!  I'll be back soon with my DT post for CHNC Extra! God Bless!
