Wishing you a bright & sparkling holiday!

I know we're a lot closer to Easter than Christmas, but I just finished a card for a couple of Christmas challenges.

 
The background was done with the embossed resist technique, in Catherine Pooler's recent class on using dye inkpads.  The sentiment and images are from Mama Elephant's "Polar Pals" stamp and matching die set.  I added some Wink of Stella glitter pen to the penguins and some crystal Stickles to the snow and sky.
 
This is for the current "F is for Frosty" challenge at ABC Christmas Challenges; the inspiration photo challenge at Tis the Season (I was inspired by the colors of blue, white, red; and the star) and the anything goes challenge at Christmas Card Challenges.

This is so cute, Brenda! Love your fun Christmas card. I know you said the colors from 'Tis the Season inspired your card, but it's like a frozen beach scene too instead of the warm beach...so fun! Love your background too. I love the emboss resist technique. :) Thanks for playing with us at 'Tis the Season.
