Ho Ho Ho!!!

A 3 in 1 card today!!I have combined the following challenges -

Passion for Promarkers #22 - Forest Green & Poppy as chosed by Claire GDT :0)
Spoonfull Of Sugar #74 - Fab sketch by Debbie
Colour Create #30 - An all White card except for the stamped image

I have used a new stamp set I bought at the w/e called Santa & Penguin by 'Craft UK', the sentiment was also included.
I have coloured the image in the following colours -

Skin - Ivory, Blush & Pastel Pink
Outfit - Poppy & Crimson
Tree - Bright Green, Grass and Forest Green
Penguin, Boots and Belt - Ice Grey 1 & 2 Cool Grey 2, 3 & 4
Outlining - Cool Aqua

The panels I have run through the cuttlebug using snow dots? and swiss dots. To give a little definition to the image and sentiment I have added glitter all around the edges! There is also a little on Santa's outfit.
Well it's cheered me up making this Christmas card as it's pouring with rain and miserable outside!!! I think I would prefer snow!!

Thanks for looking xx
