Star Gazing

Well folks, here we are again with only 167 days until Christmas, and to
help you prepare your cards for the festive season we have a new
challenge for you at Winter Wonderland. Our theme this week is

Thank you to this week's wonderful sponsor......

For the past few years I have been saving pretty cards given to us by
friends, with a plan to recycle them. However, each Christmas the 
collection expands, when I stash them away and forget about them. 
When I saw the theme of our challenge for this week I remembered 
that I had a large card with cute polar bears in the enormous collection.

Silly muggins me forgot to photograph the card before I chopped it up.
I cut the image down considerably, so as to showcase the bears, layered
the image on mauve pearlised cardstock (same as the base card), then 
created a border of silvery clear border stickers that I have had in my
junk stash forever. The sentiment is recycled from the same card.

A closer look at the little cuties. I was not happy with how I joined the
border stickers at the corners, so I covered them with tiny negatives
from a Martha Stewart PATP punch.

Inside the card is very plain.
