Blue and White Christmas

Oh my gosh, 2 Christmas Cards in one weekend, whatever next.  I was supposed to be making a girly Birthday card but my brain just went dead so off I went to check out the blogs and decided to go with this instead hoping it would wake those brain cells up but nope, still got no idea.  Birthday is not until the end of June so I've got plenty of time. 

 I am entering it into the following challenges:

Winter Wonderland - Blue and White (There's also a blog hop to celebrate their 2nd birthday)
My Time to Craft - Use a Diecut
Sketch Saturday - The Sketch (Blog Hop to celebrate 3rd Blogaversary)
A Spoon Full of Sugar - Things with wings
Christmas Stampin' All year round - To Die For
PaperCrafting Journey - Anything Goes
Allsorts Challenge - Things with wings

I've used the cute Penguin image from Pink Petticoat's Have an Ice Christmas and coloured with Promarkers.  The backing paper is from the Lidl Art and Craft pad from about 2 years ago, not much left of it now.  I've run the blue card through the snowflake and swiss dots embossing folders.  The border is using Martha Stewart Arch Lattice punch.  I've glittered the snow and the glittery ribbon is made by glittering some thin DST.

Your glittery ribbon is very effective - the blues are brilliant & really eye-catching with the little bit of red; I particularly like how fresh it is for there's no aqua tint in this & just lovely coolness (in more ways than one) though the sentiment is a warm one. All the best with that birthday card.
