VCMP Challenges #2 and #3

I combined the second and third VCMP challenge and just made one card. The second challenge is at Deliteful Gifts and asks you to make a kid's card with a critter on it. The third challenge is at BunnyScrap and challenges everyone to selectively emboss parts of your card. So I combined the two challenges and came up with this card.

I may have to hold on to this card for a while since winter cards are over for Operation Write Home. But I love this Doodle Pantry image called Quirky Polar Bear. I used the pre-colored image. I used the snowflake embossing folder with a shim that did not emboss and rounded area in the middle behind my little polar bear. The sentiment I cut out and then edged the sides with a scalloped scissors. That's a bit hard to tell from the picture. I just really like how this turned out.
I'm also entering this card in these other challenges:
Thanks for stopping by! Remember there's more to come for VCMP. Don't forget to stop back and check out what's going on. Have a wonderful evening!

Ooh, I love your embossing technique... I gave this a try today but it was challenging for me! I'll have to try again using that embossing folder. I love what you did with the snowflakes and the bear!! TFS

Very sweet! We didn't get quite as much snow to enjoy what that darling bear is doing...sliding down a fun heal. I might join in on the challenge since I did some embossing yesterday.

What an incredibly sweet card. This little bear reminds me of my little white dog that loves to roll in the snow. Great job and I love the embossing. Thank you for joining us for this challenge! ♥ Denise
