Just Us Girls #573 - Photo Week

It's Photo Week at Just Us Girls and Sue has chosen this beautiful picture to inspire your card.

I have made several cards with an aurora borealis but had difficulty with this one.  After three tries I finally had success.
I used Distress Inks on Bristol cardstock and then spritzed with Dazzling Diamonds. The bear is from MFT and when I looked in the envelope the little sentiment pole was in there (must have been a gift from someone) so I colored that and the bear with alcohol markers and put them on a piece of torn paper for the snow.  I added Snow Marker to the sign and black glaze to the bear's nose and eyes.

Now it's your turn.  What will you use to make an aurora borealis?  Check out what the design team has done.  I'm sure you will be inspired.
