Distressed while Keeping Warm With Fur!

Okay, crazy title for this post I know, but I just couldn't come up with something witty and clever!
This card is a second card for the Phindy's Place Challenge this week: Distressed. I was completely distressed over the first card but I have to say I'm enjoying the whole "destroying" my paper thing! Really though, I think the effect of the curling paper and the "basket weave" pattern in the bottom right corner is kind of neat. For the edges of the image and tag, I ruffed up the edges and then dipped them in watered down ink refills from Stampin' Up! I like the way it turned out (and I don't often think that!).
I am also entering this card in Mary's challenge at Angel Creative Updates. Her challenge this (2) week(s) is "Keeping Warm With Fur". I think this cute little, or not so little, polar bear is a great image (from Phindy's Place) that can either be used for Christmas or just winter in general - love those multi purpose images!!
This card ALSO qualifies for the Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenge: Anything Goes (as long as an animal is used!).
Enough chitchat....go check out all three challenges and enter! It's fun!!
