Pretty as a...Penguin!

Hi Again!
Back with my second post of the day...this time with a Christmas card using the lovely Penguin image from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil. I coloured him in using my Spectrum Noirs and this time set myself the challenge of mastering my grey colours - a bit tricky but I am pleased with how this little penguin turned out.

The papers I used were a magazine freebie, but because the image is so good, I wanted to concentrate on it and decided against lots of embellishments...instead I went for lots of layers and created an ornate frame with the Spellbinders Adorning Squares die - hooking the little elements of the die cut around the edges of the image.

I finished with a sentiment and a couple of those 'good ole' gold Card Candi!
Hope you like this card - I can see him turning up on a few more Xmas cards in the future!
I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Christmas Cards All Year - Anything Goes
ABC Christmas - A is for Anything
Spectrum Noir - Animals/Critters (second entry)

Thanks for looking!
