Penguins and polar bear

I'm continuing to make Christmas cards, I prefer to have them ready and made well in advance. For this card I was inspired by the bottom right card over at Muse Christmas Visions, using penguins and the placement og the circle shape on the background.

The penguins and polar bear came free with a magazine. The snowflake wreath is a Magnolia stamp. My favorite embellies, sequins, here in the shape of snowflakes, add a bit of shine, which is what I love about sequins. The sentiment is Hero Arts. I made the background with blue and black DI. The snowhills are made with Poppy dies.

This card is for:
Muse Christmas Visions - #83
City Crafter Challenge - #375 You Don't Bring Me Flowers
Christmas Card Challenges - Blue + White Snowflakes
As You Like It Challenge - Favourite Embellishment (sequins)

I admire how you have done Christmas cards all year long. I've just started with little steps, but yesterday I made about 20 new! Just quickies;-))m

Adorable card, Pia! Love this snowflake wreath, it makes your card elegant! The little penguins and the bear are so cute and just love the wonky stitched frame, this die is just in my (very long) wishlist :)

I like how you have mixed up the snowflakes and those penguins are so sweet. Also like how you created those hills. I must get a move on with my Xmas cards...although mine will be a lot less detailed!!

Hi, Pia! Apologies for my sporadic visits. Been meaning to email you... Glad to see you've been crafting like crazy-- your mojo is on fire! 🔥 curious how you did the wreath-- did you ghost the stamp, or use a pale ink???

Hi Pia. Hope all is well with you. Sorry I haven't been around much. I've been busy putting my house back in order after Hurricane Harvey. We were blessed that we didn't flood, but since we weren't sure, we took a lot of our things upstairs. I tell you something, it was a lot quicker taking it upstairs then bringing it all down and packing it away :-)
Anyway, I have taken a look at your latest cards and as always, I love them. I especially love this cute winter scene. So sweet! :-)
Have a great day.
