Directionally Challenged (Design 8)

Polar bears are my very favorite animal.  This is probably because the teddy bear I had as a child was one.  So any time something has a polar bear on it, I think it's awesome!  I'm really pleased with how this card turned out and with the humor of it since the penguin should be in the south pole, not the north pole.  You can't really see it in the picture, but the scarf and pole are sparkling with Spica glitter pen, and the little ball at the top of the pole is also sparkly.  The red baker's twine really makes the card.  I think it really pops next to the white of the snow and kind of looks like how the scarf on the polar bear would in person since you can see little fibers on it, just like a real warm scarf would have.
The inside says "There's SNOW place like home"

Stamps: A Muse Lost without you, North pole sign, baby penguin, polar bear, Holiday greets II clear set (inside)
Paper: A Muse white and sky blue cardstock
Inks: A Muse black dye and VersaFine black onyx
Misc.: Spica glitter pens, copic markers, EK Success dotted wave edge punch, Martha Stewart Crafts baker's twine, and Crystal Stickers Glitter Dome stickers
