"Deck The Halls"

Good evening good people, I am hoping for two posts tonight so here goes. My first card uses the sketch at Fab'n'Funky Challenges shown below:-

I have used some of the fabulous images at The Rusty Pickles Digital Delights Shop, the Penguin Carollers can be found here and the Lamp here. I think they work really well together and as the paper shows they are singing "Deck the Halls"! They have been coloured using watercolour crayons and metallic crayons (for the lamp post) and Sakura Stardust gel pens for the light , wreath and bow. They have been mounted onto

black glitter card which has been embossed using the Snowflakes embossing folder. I have then punched out four snowflakes for the corners. The ribbon was a freebie and is like thin tinsel. The background paper is from a Papermania colossal paper pack called Vintage Christmas - sorry can't find it anywhere. Oh and I used a white pom pom on the Penguins hat - kids kit!

I am also entering this card in the following challenges:-

Tuesday Taggers - Christmas Carol,

My Time To Craft - Winter Pals,

Creative Card Crew - Winter Pals,

Crafty Cardmakers - Alternative Christmas (traditional image with non traditional colours or non traditional image with traditional colours)and

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Non Traditional Christmas colours.

There you have it!! Please let me know what you think.
