RetroSketches | Challenge #86

This week's RetroSketches challenge had me pulling out several holiday/Christmas sets for my card. I used Papertrey Ink's Winter Penguin and Wplus9's Folk Art Flurries (my favorite snowflake stamp set ever!). 

Here is the challenge: 

And here is my take:

 (Supplies - Stamps: (PTI) Winter Penguin, Fillable Frames #7. (Wplus9) Folk Art Flurries. Cardstock: (PTI) White. (Stampin' Up!) Smokey Slate. Patterned Paper: (PTI) Pure Poppy patterns pack. Dies: (PTI) Winter Penguin, Fillable Frames #7. Ink: (PTI) Pure Poppy, True Black. (Stampin' Up!) Smokey Slate. Other: Ribbon, enamel dots, stickles.)

Doesn't this little guy put you in the holiday mood? I know... it's a little early for Christmas cards. But I don't like mass producing cards (I get bored...), so I make a few dozen different cards every year. Which means I have to start early! 

Thanks for stopping by and have a great week!

Like the way you used the pokla dot note page to mat the adorable penguin. The red snowflakes and the polka dots are a great pairing to make him stand out
