It's time to Pile It On again! - Sending Warm Wishes

Happy Sunday Everyone!
I hope you are having a great weekend and that the Winter isn't taking too much of a toll on you.
I hope I can brighten your day a little with a new card for Pile It On
We have a new challenge for you today and we want to see your "Warm Wishes". This could be a card celebrating Spring or Summer, a Winter card to make you smile or even a card with a steaming hot cup of cocoa on it!
You chose, just come back and show us all your interpretation of it and you could be this weeks winner!

As you may know Pile It On was born out of a desire to "Pile On" as many challenges as possible so this one has a few for you to see!

Ooh La La wanted you to "Create a Scene"
Flourishes want a Scene too
The Pink Elephant had a great sketch that I turned a 1/4 turn
Practical Scrappers had an Embossing challenge and so did Crafty Ann
Creative Card Crew want you to "Punch It" and so do Simon Says Stamp
Little Red Wagon want to see Snowflakes
Sassy Susie wanted a Card for a Boy (with an animal option)
Stamp With Sarah Kay wanted a Birthday Card for a Boy
Fab N Funky had a color combo of Blue, Green and White
Gingersnaps wanted Metallics
Double Dutch had a Baby It's Cold Out Here theme

I used this super cute Teddy Bear image from Dustin Pike and colored it with Copic's. I added Puffy Paint for snow to complete the scene.
The papers are Peppermint Forest from Joanns. I cut and nested the image with Nesties.
The border punch on the striped panel is Martha Stewart and the panel was then embossed with a Winter embossing folder.
The punch on the silver border is a new one from EKSuccess.
I printed out the sentiment and raised both the image and sentiment on foam for dimension.

The inside is more dp and a message mat.

A close up of the bears wheeling their good wishes through the snow!

I'd love you to join in so go on create something for us and link it back so we can come and see it!
Good Luck!
