Penguin Time

Hello.  Welcome.  Have you seen my candy?  Check out that post for a chance to win and an ATC swap.  Taking a little break from Halloween and looking forward to Christmas with a cute card using Cheery Lynn dies and an LOTV image. 

I wanted to try a white and kraft colour scheme because I've been seeing some beautiful cards around with that colour combo.  I'm quite pleased with the result.  I used a kraft card and cut a smaller layer.  I edged this with lace and silver glitter.  I cut 6 Cheery Lynn Snowflake 2 and layered then with white flowers cut using Sizzix Flowers and Vines #3 die and a silver snowflake brad.  The image is from LOTV Winter Wonderland art pad which I tore and added silver glitter around the edge.  The greeting is hand written because I couldn't find a christmas greeting stamp!!  Would you believe it!  I am convinced I will turn around in a minute and a whole box full will fall on my head.  One of those days.  I added a bit of coffee and cake around the greeting and the edge of the card.
