Cardz TV Stamp Challenge #2 Crafty Christmas

Welcome to Cardz TV Stamp Challenge #2 CRAFTY CHRISTMAS! Please join in the fun and look for a surprise!  Mary  will be giving away not one but TWO sets of stamps to the winner of the challenge.

Here's my project - a 5 1/2" by 5 1/2" square card.

Now about the card:
Inspired by Cardmaking and Papercraft magazine, I made this card using  "Classic Christmas" stamp "Noel".  Here's a close up of the beautiful Noel stamp.  This is an elegant stamp set with deep swirls!
And here is a closeup of the polar bears.  This image is from the Winter Wonder Christmas Stamp Collection that came with issue 11 of  Cardmaking and Papercraft .   I stamped and colored the image twice, then cut out the polar bears and layered them for depth.   The oval grouping is popped up from the squares below to add more depth to the card.
The solid papers are from Recollections and Christmas paper is from Me and My Big Ideas. The ovals and the squares were cut from the George cartridge.
