Less is More Challenge...

Hi Guys...I'm back with a card for this weeks Less is More Challenge...this time they are giving us a chance to catch up with our Christmas cards but would like us to use a bird...ummm...well you cant miss

I wasn't sure if a Penguin was classed as a bird...but hey!....this sweet penguin is by Clearly Besotted...I just love that he comes with his hat and scarf...I used the matching dies to cut him and his red felt hat out.  I cut a circle and stamped the little snowflakes that comes with the set and I embossed them with sparkly clear powder.  I then used DI's all over the circle.  I cut a smaller circle to give the impression of a snow hill and embossed that too and added some clear Rock candy for extra sparkle. I used a little of glossy accents on his beak and then I used 3D pads on all the bits so there is lots of dimension.
I hope you have a super Sunday
