Christmas Penguin

Here I am, again, with one more card for today. Again, going with the black, silver and bling combination. My card layout uses the Sketch at Fetch A Sketch. The image is by Bugaboo Stamps. I've colored the image with Promarkers. The paper is a scrap from my stash. I also used a small scrap of black embossed paper with splashes of silver, leftover from a card I posted earlier, today. I tied silver metallic twine around the card, and around the small scrap of black and silver paper. I just love all these bows made with the twine! The buttons are recycled from an old shirt I threw away on one of my cleaning sprees. The image has had glitter and sparkle added with a clearstar gelly roll pen. I finished off the card by adding some bling with these silver metal snowflakes. I figured I didn't need to add an additional sentiment, since they're printed all over my DP.

This is a card for my favorite aunt, who loves penguins!
