Merry Christmas Penguins

I've been busy trying to make some quick last-minute cards which also won't break the bank to mail out, so I've been trying to keep them quite flat.  I've made a couple using one of my favourite Lili of the Valley stamps from last year's purchases. I love this image as it's quite large so it fills up quite a bit of a C&S style card, and I love images that create a scene with more than one character.  Plus it features penguins, and who doesn't love cute penguins!

I've made a couple in different colours, one is to support both the 'favourite Christmas stamp' challenge at As You Like It Challenge and the other supports the 'Snow' challenge at Crafty Little Fairies.

First up is a purple one with lilac shimmer backing paper ...

And secondly, a pale blue one, with blue glitter backing paper ...
