ABC Christmas Challenge - K is for...

We have a new ABC Christmas Challenge starting today...I'm the host, and the theme is:

'K is for Keep it Simple'

Our sponsor for this challenge is Faery Ink Digital Stamps:
Prize - 3 Digital Images of the winner's choice!

I like to 'keep it simple' on as many Christmas cards as possible...makes them quick(er) to make and (hopefully!) saves on postage too! I've used a Lili of the Valley image called 'Penguin Pals'. which I coloured using watercolour pencils, and then cut out. For the background, I simply layered a piece of snowflake paper (from the 'Merry Little Christmas' pad by My Mind's Eye) behind a piece of plain white card stamped with a sentiment (from the 'Joy to the World' set by Penny Black).

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
