Have a Funky Christmas

I made this Christmas card for my great-nephew and am entering it into the Merry Monday 'Birds' challenge and the  52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown 'Pick a Previous 2015 Challenge" - I've chosen the August 2015 'For a Child' challenge.  The card was from my snippets drawer so I'm popping over to the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Embossing folder: Crafts-Too Dandilion Time
Other: Penguin topper and sentiment (make unknown), Wink of Stella
Snippets: White silk and orange mirri card

I embossed the white silk card, trimmed it to size, layered it onto orange mirri card and attached it to the card front.  The penguin topper and sentiment were layered onto orange mirri card and attached to the card.  To finish, I highlighted the penguins with a Wink of Stella.

LOVE this card Kath - at first I thought you'd been stamping and cutting those penguins from scratch - they're very much 'on trend' right now!

Lovely card for a youngster Kath, the penguins remind me of matryoshka dolls increasing in size from left to right I'm sure they would fit one inside the other if they were figures

Your use of that dandelion e/f for snowflakes was inspired, Kath! It's a perfect backdrop for your adorable penguin family!! Happy Holiday Hugs! Darnell
