Greetings from the North Pole

I adore the Lili of the Valley penguins they're just so cute.  So, for this card I wanted to make them the main focus and keep it simple and clean.

I decided to colour the image Merry Christmas Penguins in black and white for a change.  My dies weren't quite big enough so I've drawn round the outside edge of one and then sketched an elongated curve to make up the shape, which I then had to hand cut.  The image is edged in black biro and finished off with some glitter to highlight the snow and some red self adhesive gems to the sign.

I've used black, white and red card stock to make up the layers and for the curved die cuts at the top of the card.  The postage stamp at the top right is from the Grunge Christmas Postmarks set.

Final touch some black and some more red self adhesive gems.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges
Lili of the Valley - Christmas
Fab n Funky - Anything with Die Cuts
Fantasy Stampers - Cute Christmas
Winter Wonderland - Dies and Punches
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas Animal

And again Happy Sunday, it's a lovely day here in Yorkshire so we might go for a walk later.
