Penguins, an igloo and a christmas tree ....

Here is my card for LOTV Challenge 69 - the picture is a diecut embellished with oodles of stickles. (note, I'm getting so much practice with this stickles stuff that I don't put my fingers in the wet stuff as much as I used to)  I used mitten weather Cosmo Cricket paper with stick on pearls from 3djean, turquoise card and mulberry flowers which I tweaked with turquoise stickles from stash because they were actually blue and I needed aqua or turquoise.  The turquoise twill stripe ribbon and the very narrow white ric rac is from the Ribbon Girl.  It took me ages to do and I couldnt find the gizmo for punching holes to allow a ribbon to be threaded, so improvised with more stick on pearls!  The photo is not very good because it is very very grey here - see the photo I took at 2 in the afternoon today - yes folks, that is your actual white stuff in my back garden, not at the top of a mountain (at the top of a hill, yes, but I don't live that high up)!!! I'm off to find my woollies, gloves and boots - it's only mid-October and I'm so glad my helpful hubby cut the grass yesterday!
