Sugar Bowl Challenge 41

I finally got some time this morning to have a play in the "toy" room...and I thought I'd start with The Sugar Bowl challenge...well, the prize is pretty awesome!!

This year is zooming at a furious rate and I need to get lots more christmas cards made so that led me to choose this Diane Duda Penguin stamp. I love the tender expressions these 2 share (awwwww)!

I christened my magnolia swirly doohickey and placed 3 around the image (but if this does not meet the requirements of this sketch thats ok).

I've just realised that this also fits the theme at A Spoon Full of Sugar (Christmas in August) so I'm entering this card there!

Right I'm off back up to the toyroom!! bx

Edit: What I forgot to mention (and you can't even see in the photo) is that I stamped, coloured and cut out a 2nd Mrs Penguin and HALF glued to the first layer, and put 1mm foam pads on the other half so that there is a bit of dimension on the card!

Beautiful card Bernie.
Those little penguins are so sweet, and your colouring is fab.
Yes, the swirls still qualify, and great idea to use instead of the star.
Thank you for joining in the Sugar Bowl Challenge.
Love Elaine xx
