The challenge over at the sugar bowl is to do something unusual for you, so after looking at the Christmas decorations I bought last year in the sale as I thought then they would look good on a card, but haven't yet plucked up the courage to use them as wasn't really sure how they would work decided now was the time.
I used a fab image of these ever so cute penguins and using the decorations as the base of my colour scheme coloured them with promarkers and added stickles for more sparkle. The papers are both from my scraps file and the ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is a craftworks I think as I won them a couple of Christmases ago and hadn't used them all. The snowflake I made by using some packaging card from a shirt and covering with pva glue and white glitter.
I am really pleased I took the plunge and might have a go at another card using a different colour decoration, thanks for the inspiration and push.
