WRS Christmas...Pickle Penguin!

Happy Sunday everyone....
Inbetween all the washing and cleaning and feeding the family...I found a little time gap and made a little card using my new christmas Wild Rose Studio stamps...and what fun I had!
I have never made a tri-fold card before or cut out windows...Can you guess what Pickle Penguin is doing?

Here he is peeking throught the glittery snow encrusted windows. The snowflakes are falling all around..large and small...I used white and silver glitter embossing powder for the large ones. 

The blue background snowflake paper is from the Wild Rose Studio Christmas CD and I distressed the edges with dark blue and black chalk...then stamped lots of different sized snowflakes.

As the card opens out you can see the scene inside....

Very cute little Pickle skating away with the wind in his feathers...

I used a grey and black colouring pencil for Pickles body along with Promarkers in Satin, Gold and Lipstick Red...a touch of Blush and Blossom for his cheeks. I absolutely loved colouring Pickle in!!!

and there you have it...just a little card...BIG fun to make!

Charisma Cardz challenge this week is lots of that!
I love promarkers Challenge is TRAVEL/TRANSPORT...Hope the ladies will allow Pickles Ice Skates! He is going really fast!

Off to start the veggies now for the Sunday Roast! Hope you're all having a lovely relaxing day!
