Christmas Penguin

Hello Everyone, 
I've managed to do another Christmas card!! - I WILL have a full box by December!!
The challenge at ABC Christmas challenge is to use one of two photographs for inspiration, one of which has Penguins on it so I chose this image from Di's Digi Downloads, which is called 'Penguin Hug'.
I've coloured him with my promarkers. I've added glitter to the snowman's hat and some white pearls for the mistletoe.
The central band is made from 3 layers. I used a band of card and covered with a wide ribbon, then used a dotty ribbon on top and for the bow.
The poinsettia's are a marianne creatables die. 
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges
ABC Christmas Challenge - Photo for inspiration
My Mum's Craft Shop - Embossing
Stampin for the Weekend - 4 Layers
Totally Papercrafts - White on White.


Enjoy the bank holiday Monday and thanks for taking the time to stop by.
