Sweet Sunday Penguins

I couldn't resist making another card with this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC14. This is card #13 for Project Christmas 2011. I used the fun Round the Chimney set from The Cat's Pajamas. These little penguins are totally adorable!!

I have to say, I can't remember the last time I made a card without using patterned paper, but there's not a stitch of patterned paper on this one! I did "make my own" patterned paper though by repeating the sentiment on the smaller panel...it's a neat effect!

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto choice snow white and coloured with copics. I added a few coats of clear glaze pen to the glass and some fluffy white liquid applique trim to the stockings and hat. I wrapped some Green Apple Divine Twine around the bottom of the card and anchored it in place with some layered snowflakes. I really love the simple look of this card!!

Thanks for stopping by!
