Sparkle and Shine Challenge #19

Hello there! It's time for another Sparkle and Shine Challenge!  Here is the inspiration photo for this challenge:

We are sponsored this week by our friends at Pretty Pink Posh!

Here is my card, inspired by the photo!  I love the warm grey, the pops of cool white, and that purple satin blanked!  So much so, that I pulled out my satin ribbon for this card, which I haven't done in ages!  I forgot how difficult tying a nice bow can be! LOL!

To create my winter wonderland scene, I first watercolored a piece of Tim Holtz Distress Watercolor paper with Pumice Stone distress ink.  I diecut, stamped and colored some images from the Papertrey Ink Warmest Wishes stamp set.  I used the In the Meadow Hills dies to create a bank for the polar  bear to stand on and adhered that to the watercolor piece with foam tape. Before doing that, I added a stitched edge to all of my pieces with the Avery Elle Wonky Stitches dies.  For a little extra interest I added some Soft Stone patterned paper to the top of the panel, and added a pinked border with the PTI Pinking Shears border die.  I stamped a sentiment from the same stamp set, added the bear foam tape, and then adhered the panel to a purple card base before tying my satin bow and adding a scattering of my favorite Sparkling Clear sequins from Pretty Pink Posh!
