Pick up a Penguin.

Still not up to blogging but again this was a post I had prepared earlier in the month for posting .
It's time again for another card over at the Christmas Card Club.
This time the theme has been set by Carol who is asking for
Penguins.
If we didn't have a penguin we were allowed to use an alternate
Christmas Bird.
I didn't have any penguin stamps or digi's but I did have an old recycled card
so I used that instead!
 I used a silver card blank and matted with DP.
by Dovercraft from their Back to Basics Christmas. Pack
Old recycled card had a row of 5 penguins but I decided to cut it down to 3.
Die cut using Spellbinders 'Majestic Elements '
Matted onto red card also by Dovercraft and Die cut using the same  set.
Greeting was salvaged from bottom of the card and matted onto the red.
Raised up with 3d strip to give dimension.
