A Gem Of A Challenge 10...Christine's Sketch!....

Hi everyone!
A scheduled post from me today to tell you about this month's
This month is hosted by the lovely Christine who has given us the brilliant sketch below to use, plus optional extra of.....
'A Christmas card in non traditional colours.......not red or green'
I have used the very cute 'Penguin With Gift' available at Pink Gem Designs.
I coloured him with Promarkers and added snow detail with Polar White Flower Soft, plus self adhesive gems.
It's the first time I tried out my Flower Soft, although I've had it for ages. I applied it with a Quickie glue pen. I must say, love the effect! Now to try out my other colours!

The DP's are old Hot Off The Press ones from my stash.
The holly was hand cut and then I shaped it with an embossing tool. I added Card Candy for the berries.

I also used my Martha Stewart zig zag punch, organza ribbon, raffia lace, and a plastic tag.

Hope you will join us this month, and have a go at the challenge!
Sorry I have been a really rubbish blogger lately. We had a house of illness last week, and now hubby has a week off work, the last one until January!
So we are doing some jobs around the house plus Christmas shopping.
I hope I'll have some time to leave you some comments soon, and maybe some time to actually make something!! Thankfully in an attempt to be organised, I made this card 2 weeks ago.
I'm going to try and sort out some candy really soon to make up for it, so watch this space!

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Jenny xx
