BUGABOO STAMPS' NEW RELEASE TUESDAY

Today's new Bugaboo Stamps new releases are perfectly precious!  ... 
a collection of WINTER PENGUINS ... just right for those Christmas cards that you want to have finished BEFORE the Christmas posting deadline this year ... LOL!

Here is my card with one of them:


Now isn't that fun?!  I coloured the image to match my new DP I bought at Merle's store last week.  Click HERE  to see the great range she has.  If you are ever in Durban, a visit to Merle's beautifully laid out store just has to be on your itinerary!

Here is a closer look at the image that I coloured using alcohol markers and a white gel pen:

As the DP had some Stickles on it, I decided to use the same on the scarf and hat.

These are the items from my stash that I used to create my card:
white CS base card
red CS card mats
three die cut snow flask (two are cut from offcuts of very VERY shiny silver metallic CS)

I would like to add my card to the following challenges:
