Xmas Penguin

Hi again. Here is another Christmas card - this blogging is great for motivation and the Christmas card pile is building up xx
This cute penguin image is from a stamp by Gillian Roberts. I coloured him using whisper pens and for his body I used glamour dust. I added clear stickles to the fur on his hat.

I used papers from the Forever Friends retro collection and mounted them on some green card. I added added some small buttons and a sentiment and found some christmas trees in my stash. I tied some gold and green  ribbon in a bow and finished the card off with a giant brad I seem to have had forever and never found a use for. Just goes to show you should never throw anything away!
I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -
