Percy on ice

Here is another Percy Penguin from Molly Blooms, available at Sir Stampalot I have coloured him with distress inks and added stickles-Diamond and Liquid Pearls-Platinum for a bit of bling. I love these penguins, they just make me smile and this one didn`t take too much colour on him and was a good one to do a quick and easy card with.
I`ve used my fave punch at the moment, Martha Stewart-Eyelet Lace. (I said a couple of posts ago that it`d be cropping up again soon !) I haven`t got any Christmas border punches but I think this one looks kinda Christmassy ?
The sentiment is from Create a Scene stamp set from Creative Expressions - Vintage Christmas.

The snowflakes are cut with Marianne Creatables dies and I`ve again added stickles to them for a bit of sparkle. The little snowballs are white pom poms also available from Sir Stampalot. The background paper is Magnolia. I needed a border on this and I couldn`t find another paper to mat and layer with that matched so instead I just glued a fine line around the edge and added prisma glitter ( which I got covered in !! ) I think it makes for a nice snowy looking border and you don`t have to be too precise with it !

I actually made this card over a week ago as I haven`t been able to craft all week as I came down with a chest infection, God knows where I got that from, I was fine one day and sick the next and it has knocked me off my feet a bit but I`m on the mend now and looking forward to crafting again, I`ve missed getting covered in glue and glitter this past week !

Thanks for visiting me, bye for now and happy crafting.
