December Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge

It is December - do you have your Christmas cards done for this year - if not - jump on the band wagon and join us at Happy Little Stampers for our December Christmas challenge.  Anything Goes is the challenge with the optional twist of snow.

I have had this stamp for quite a few years and decided I needed to use it this year.  I colored the snowman and penguins with Zig Clean Color Markers.  It is fun to use them.  I added dots and stripes to the penguins scarves and hats with a white gel pen.  The background was done with a new cloud stencil from My Favorite Things and distress oxide ink.

The paper is pieces I had in my vast collection of paper (pop in next Monday on my blog to see a couple more cards using this same image).  The sentiment was heat embossed with white embossing powder.  A bow of bakers twine was added to complete the card.

I love the happy expressions on the penguins and snowman.  Some glitter was added under the snowman and penguins to make you think of snow.

Please join us this month for our Christmas Challenge at Happy Little Stampers

Did I tell you there is a prize?
