AAA Cards Challenge #154: Made in Minutes + Inkblending, with video

This  fortnight our  sponsor is Uniko.
Our challenge is: Made in Minutes with the optional twist of Inkblending.
This card took me less than 13 minutes, you can see it in the video it really didn't take long. According to our blog, you're allowed to plan your card and gather your supplies. Then see if you can create it in minutes - under 15 would be great, but no more than 30.

For my card I used the  Marianne Design Collectables col1409 to make a polar bear. I actually had one left in my bowl of pre-made/cut/coloured things, but I wanted to put it together on camera as it's a really quick process, once you've diecut everything.

Then I've used a piece of scrap with a circle cut out and placed in on my cardbase. I've used Distress Oxides Broken China and Chipped Sapphire for my circle, I did start with Tumbled Glass, but the colours blended as I use the same mini blending tool. That's OK I like it better with the Chipped Saphhire in the centre, so happy accident.

For the sentiment I've used Uniko's set called Simply said blocks Christmas, there's a few different sets, for different occasions. To  stamp it I've used Versafine Clair Nocturn ink.
adhered the polar bear on the circle and I used double sided tape on the back before diecutting, it's like a big sticker.
A few glittery enamel dots to finish the card.
Later I thought, white ink as snow inside the circle would have been nice, maybe next time lol.
