Another Christmas card in June!

I just discovered two Christmas challenge blogs:  ABC Christmas Challenge and Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge!  These aren't new challenge blogs, but they're new to me and I'm excited to join in on their challenges.

The current challenge @ ABC Christmas Challenges is to incorporate a gift into your project, so I stamped some little presents on this card.  The Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge is to use three or more layers.  I have four or five on this card, including the ribbon and the stamped images that are adhered with foam tape so there's some dimension to them.

 
The little penguins are from a Mama Elephant stamp set, the tree and gifts are from a Recollections stamp set, and the sentiment is from Hero Arts.  I sponged some distress ink around the edges, and spritzed a little green and gold marker around the edges, also.  A little sparkle was added with some Wink of Stella glitter pens on the Christmas lights and the ribbons on the packages.
