Hello!  We have a fifth Saturday in the month of August, which means it’s time for a Pick a Previous challenge at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown!  Gill, our challenge hostess, is asking us to choose a previous 52{C}CT sketch for our inspiration this time.  Go to the 52{C}CT site, click on the “Sketches Archive” tab, and select one of the 30+ sketches to use in creating your Christmas or wintry card.

I’ve chosen the June 2014 sketch for my card this week.  It’s been a while since I’ve used this penguin image so I thought I’d get him inky again.  For the horizontal and vertical crossing elements, I’ve layered two different ribbons – a very sheer white one, and a satin one to match the darker blue-green cardstock.  The penguin panel is adhered with dimensional adhesive to accommodate the thickness of the ribbons.

  2. trop mignonne, ce pingouin est adorable et le bleu lui donne l’effet givré qui lui va bien, biz

  3. That penguin is adorable Patricia, perfect for the sketch you chose and I love the colours too! Warm Wishes is such a lovely sentiment and seems so apt with the penguin being bundled up in his woolly scarf!
