Teddy with Penguin

This month's Christmas Cards All Year Round challenge is 'Anything Goes' which is a nice and easy challenge for the final one of the year.

This is my sister's Christmas card and I'm entering the  Lili of the Valley 'Anything Goes' challenge, the Cutie Pie Challenge 'Bear Hugs' and A Gem of a Challenge 'Animals in the Snow', the Holly and Ivy Christmas Challenge 'Anything Christmas Goes' and Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge 'Anything Goes'.

Card blank: 7" x 7" white silk
Image: Lili of the Valley 'Teddy with Penguin' Mini Masterpiece
Die: 'Creative Expressions - From the Hear - Female Relatives'
Punch: Woodware Large and Regular Snowflake
Card: Gold pearlescent
Paper: Lili of the Valley 'Sunny Side Up'
Other: Stampendous Fun Flock, Diamond and Xmas Red Stickles, Wink of Stella

I layered the red paper onto gold card and attached it to the card front.  I trimmed the precoloured image and die cut 'Sister' from the top corner before layering it onto gold card.  I die cut 'Sister' from gold card and inlaid it, then ran the panel through my Cuttlebug to ensure the inlaid die cut lay flat.  The panel was then attached to the centre.  I punched three snowflakes and attched them above the teddy and penguin.  I added Fun Flock to the penguin's hat, Diamond Stickles on the snow and Xmas Red Stickles to the centre of the snowflakes.  To finish I highlighted the teddy with a Wink of Stella.
