I for Icy Inspiration

Good morning, it is time for the start of another ABC Christmas Challenge. Our theme this time,

'I' for - Icy Inspiration

This week we have chosen two great, icy photos as the inspiration for your beautiful creations.

I was inspired by the photo of the penguins as it reminded me of this adorable Penguin image from Motivet stamps.  I coloured it up and then went looking for papers (backwards I know) but it just happened to work wonderfully with this wintry background paper. I didn't have another piece of paper that went with it so I pulled out my distress inks and a large stamp to make an accent paper. I have picked up on the lime green accents with the large bow and added a little sentiment to finish it all off.

This card will be entered into the following challenges:
