Snowball Fun

Are you ready for another Christmas card? Be ready, because you're going to be seeing lots of them, now! I went with non traditional Christmas colors, for this one.

For my project today, I used this cute penguin by Bugaboo Stamps. This little cutie is colored with Promarkers. I've used the sketch at Sweet Stop for my card layout. The non traditional colored papers are scraps from my stash. I used this awesome ribbon from American Crafts to add that something extra. The white patterned paper is actually glittered cardstock. I also added glitter and sparkle to the image with a clearstar jelly roll pen, so there is lots of sparkle on this one!
