Penguin fun

It's time for our mid challenge reminder at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra, our theme is always 'anything goes' - you can use any materials, any techniques etc., as long as the end result is a Christmas card.

I have used the fabulous image called Little Penguin Winter - decorate tree from our regular sponsor - Bugaboo. I coloured my image with Spectrum Noir markers and added some glitter.


I decided on a CAS design for this cute image and just added a small strip of paper from the Carta Bella So This Is Christmas Paper Pack along with a smaller strip of matching card stock.  The sentiment is from the same paper pack.

Bugaboo Stamps are our sponsor this challenge


They are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Addicted to Stamps and More Challenge 144 - CAS
Christmas at Sweet Stampin' - Cute Christmas
Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge - Clean and Simple
Digi Sketch Challenge - Sketch and/or Theme: Animals
Hanna & Friends Challenge 222 - Dots and/or Circles

Make sure you pop over to the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog and check out the fabulous DT inspiration - we would love for you to join us for our Anything Goes Christmas challenge.
