DO YOU SEE WHAT I SEE?

 
The sentiment is quoted from the Christmas carol by the same title. When I noticed that these polar bears were gazing upward, it gave me the idea to have them looking up into the heavens on the night that bright star appeared. The light from it was like no other star in the sky. And on that silent night, angels could be heard singing. Perhaps these bears heard the beautiful sound. It's for certain they saw the star, for how could they not!

Card Details
The white card base has several layers overlain. The first is the night sky, cut from navy glittered felt. To that I added hand cut layers of snow drifts. The front layer is glittered white. All layers are pop-dotted for dimension. The bears are cut at 3" and 2.5" cut from smooth cardstock.

I prepared the sentiment on my computer and sponged the edges with gold. The star and sentiment mat are the same yellow. I added some shine to the star with gold glitter paint. 

These bears seem to have their own personality. I love their expressions and their cheerful red scarves.
