Warm Winter Wishes

This is a card I've made for the Sugar Bowl Challenge  which is a sketch by Erika with the additional theme of patchwork.


For the main image I've used one of the new Christmas stamps from Sugar Nellie which is called Warm Winter Wishes and coloured it using Promarkers.  The colour scheme for the card was taken from the backing papers which are from the Christmas Fairy backing papers download from Cuddly Buddly.  Unfortunately I can't post a link to this download as I couldn't find it in their shop.  They do have other lovely Christmas papers to download which would look as good using a different colour scheme.  The pattern on the the paper reminded me of patchwork so I hope it fits the theme.

The snowflake embellishments were made using the Spellbinders create a flake 1 dies which were cut, embossed and then Bashful Blue Stampin' up ink sponged over the die before removing the flake.  The little curly embellishments were cut using a Quicktz die.  Some of the snowflake pieces were glittered using Stampin' up Dazzling Diamonds glitter as were the pompom and hat rim of the penguin and the ground around their feet.  Bashful Blue ink was also sponged around the scalloped edges of the card and around the main image.  The sentiment was created on the computer and die cut using oval nestabilities.  The pastel blue satin ribbon is from John Lewis.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges
