Penguin 2CCC

      Hi Everyone, I have 3 DT cards today, this is for -

our new named blog

although the rules are slightly different, we still have the same challenge

Anything Goes but they MUST feature a critter as the main focus

Whether Furry, Feathered, Fantasy, Fairytale, 
Scaly, or Insect, there must be a critter...

I have tried to do mostly one layer cards for Christmas this year, last year I was charged to much for the post! My cheapskate part of me took over! 

My card is using the cutest penguin, I added the lights to him digitally and deleted part, so it looks like they are behind his head and I had him stand on an ice cube. I added a background that has pale snowflakes in the image then added the sentiment. I printed it, then added clear glaze to the lights, his eyes and beak and some snowflake dies from mirror card. I didn't want to add another layer under it, so I went around the edge with a glue pen and added silver glitter. A nice light-ish card for posting.

Hopefully you can see the shine on the lights and the face here.

That's a great one layer card, and the sparkle of the silvery snowflakes is just as pretty as the shimmer on those lights! Super cute card!
