Penguin Presents

I have a simple little Christmas card to share today...featuring a cute Lili of the Valley image called 'Penguin Presents'. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then carefully cut him out. I used three snippets of paper from the 'Bundled Up' pad by Crate Paper along the bottom of my card...adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment stamp is from the Scribbly Christmas set by Tim Holtz/Stampers Anonymous.

Challenges for this card:

What a great card Helen! And such terrific use of snippets as well - like Caroline (Keep It Sweet and Simple) above says, I thought you'd used material :)
