It's Christmas Time

I used papers from quick cards magazine for this card. The image is from pollycraft and I coloured it with my promarkers, cool grey 4, slate, black, lime green, bright green, cornflower, denim blue, sky blue, cyan, bright orange, mandarin, rose pink, cerise and gold, adding glutter-glue to the trim of the penguins hat and to the gifts.

I stamped the sentiment from papermania, added a small snowflake in blue to the sentiment - alas, it doesn't show very well on the image - and added two snowflake embellishments and some gems to finish.

I now have 16 Christmas cards for December 2013 already!
