Morning Everyone,

I thought I'd pop yet another christmas card in today.  I was inspired by the following sketch on The Sketchy Challenges blog.

It is a pre-coloured LOTV image, but I have added some glitter, liquid pearls and a little bit more colouring to the penguins' feet.

I inked round the edge of the image, but decided I didn't like it so I glittered them instead, but you can't see it very well. I distressed the edges of the papers which is LOTV,  sewed round the edge with my machine and cut 2 Memory box stars from glitter paper and also punched a couple of snowflakes, which are also glittered.

That's two cards in two days! I'll have to go and think about my next one now, perhaps it might be another christmas card, just for a change :) .

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Cute Christmas Characters
Ribbon Girl - Card 
Paper Creator - Christmas
Squirrel's NSRC - Anything Goes
