Merry Penguins

This is my card for this weeks Less is More challenge, the theme is Jingle all the Way!, but it does say 'anything Christmassy' so hopefully my card will be OK.

My inspiration came from a card by Laura Bassen, I have used stamps from Lawn Fawn and also their Stitched Hillside Borders die.


I only had a single penguin stamp and as I wanted the penguins to be looking at each other I stamped onto acetate and took an image from that as well as stamping one normally, I then coloured my penguins with ProMarkers and inked the sky lightly with distress ink.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Less is More Week 199 - Jingle all the Way!

These penguins are so versatile and on my wish list Pauline ... they are so popular though every time I look they are sold out :-(
I also saw Lauren's video and inspired so love your take on it.
Thanks so much for sharing and taking part.
