Snowball Penguins

Another Christmas card today...featuring a cute Bugaboo Stamps image called 'Snowball Penguins'. I coloured it using watercolour pencils, then added some sparkle to the snowballs using a Sakura Stardust pen, and a sentiment from the 'Joy to the World' set by Penny Black. The papers are from the 'Now & Then' pad by My Mind's Eye...I inked around the edges with 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a white gel pen. The adhesive pearls are by Papermania.
