Cozy Christmas

I have made another Christmas card using cute animals!

This card is for the following challenges:

Christmas Challenges {with sketches} - Sketch challenge
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
de Creatieve Zebra - Anything Goes
Incy Wincy - Anything Goes
For this card, I have used the sketch provided on Christmas Challenges {with sketches} - see link above.

The papers are from Bearly Mine Designs.  I cut these into 2 cm strips and then laid green satin ribbon between the pieces which gave it a bit more lift (and kept within the twist at CCWS!).  The image is one from Bugaboo and I think it is called Lil Penguins Winter Bench.  The sentiment is one from Bird's Cards which I felt was fitting for this little penguins!  I had some white space on the corner of the die-cut so added a green satin ribbon bow.  The image has been coloured with copic markers and some highlighting done with Matte Accents, crystallina Kindy Glitz and some small red rhinestones.

Last week, de Creatieve Zebra seemed to have some sort of problem with the Linky thing.  After working out what time it finished (being on a different time zone), when I went to link up it had closed.  I was sure that I had calculated it correctly and I still had about an hour to go.   However, I may have been an hour out!  Anyways, if someone from de Creatieve Zebra would like to have a look at what I did with last week's sketch, I'd appreciate it.  The link is:
Thank You.
