holly and jolly

i have another two-fer card tonight! i made it today while my little one was napping - it was a race to see who would finish first...but i won! :) and here it is:

(inside it says: Christmas!)

i made it for the challenges over at cupcake inspirations and wee memories! below is the inspiration cupcake from cupcake inspirations:

this week's challenge for wee memories was holiday music inspiration! which of course, i chose the song that goes: ...have a holly jolly christmas, it's the best time of the year...needless to say, it's been stuck in my head ever since i finished the card! :)

almost all of the stamps are lawn fawn, with the exception of the polariod stamp, which love too, and that's from wilson designs. i popped up the animals for dimension, and i tried to use a different technique for each animal! the polar bear is dry embossed, the penguin in paper pieced (like the holly, which is also glittered), and seal is paper-pieced with textured paper - plus i just love that it looks like he's balancing the holly on his nose like a ball! :)

i also watermarked some snowflakes behind each animal so it would a little bit more like a real snapshot! :)
have a great weekend!
