Penguin Pals

I seem to be stuck in Christmas card mode at the moment...and today's card features another Lili of the Valley stamp, this time it's 'Penguin Pals', which I coloured using watercolour pencils...adding some Stickles to the snow. The papers are from the 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate Paper...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The snowflake was cut using a Memory Box die, and is held in place using a gem brad from Craft Obsessions.

I'm so glad you are stuck in Christmas mode, because this is gorgeous! That image is sooo cute (though I have yet to see a LOTV image that was not adorable!) and I just love that snowflake die. Thanks for playing with CHNCC2.
