Pppp pop up a Penguin!

Hello Everyone, 
I hope you are all having a good summer. I've managed another card...!!!! I've seen a few of these box pop up cards around blogland so I thought I'd have a go....mmm...!
I wanted to use one of the new stamps from Lili of the Valley.....Hubby has bought me a few of them for my birthday and they arrived a couple of days ago...however...my birthday isn't til the end of the month so he's making me wait! This is one of the older Lili of the Valley stamps - Penguin Presents.
I've coloured him with promarkers and the background papers are from Lili of the Valley - Frosty Christmas
I've used a Marianne Creatables Tree die and a few pearls. The sentiment stamp is also from Lili of the Valley.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:-
LOTV Ideas to Inspire - Christmas in August
ABC Christmas - P is for Penguins
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Crafty Hazelnuts Extra - Anything Christmas
Crafty Cardmakers - Fancy Folds
I Love Promarkers - Fancy Folds

Thanks for taking the time to visit my little blog today and for all your lovely comments and encouragement.

Fantastic Lorraine. Love the penguin image and the layout of your card in a box is stunning. It must be very frustrating for you knowing there are new LOTV images in the house, but you are not allowed to play with them! Not too long to your birthday, it will soon be here.
