Penguin Goes For A Ride

Hello there my lovelies, hope you're all well.

I'm so sorry I haven't been about this week to see you all, but I have had the flu and haven't felt well enough to do anything.  Anyway, feeling much better now and I will hopefully be about to see you all today.

When it came to posting my Christmas cards last year I noticed that I'd made way too many with heavy embellishments, so couldn't post them.  So this year I'm making sure to make the majority of my cards flat, so they can be posted.  I've used 'Penguin goes for a ride' available from Stamping Bella.  I stamped directly onto some kraft card and coloured with copics.  I wasn't sure how well this card would work with copics, but I was very pleasantly surprised.  No bleeding at all.  I used a white coloursoft pencil to colour in the white bits and then added crystal glitter.  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley Handwritten Christmas Sentiments.


I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
