North or South Pole with Winter Wonderland

Hi Folks
We are really on the countdown to Christmas now.  I put my tree up last night when I got in from work.  Was going to wait till the weekend but it's another job ticked off the list.  I am working again this Saturday so the weekend is already reduced to one day only lol.

Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Winter Wonderland.  Our theme for this week is:
North or South Pole
We want to see your creations featuring penguins or polar bears.

Here is my inspiration project for you.

I used a cute stamp from Woodware which I have had for a couple of years.  I went for a clean and simple look with no embellishments.  I coloured the image with promarkers and added some faux stitching, liquid pearls and stickles.  The image was then matted onto black and then glitter card.  Added a stamped sentiment to the bottom of the card as the finishing touch.

Our sponsor this week at Winter Wonderland is:

with a surprise package for our lucky winner.

Thanks for popping by and looking forward to seeing all your entries.  Just pop over to Winter Wonderland for full challenge details.  Don't forget to check out the fab inspiration from my talented teamies.

I would like to enter the following challenges;

Addicted to Stamps and More - CAS
CRAFT - Christmas
Sassy Studio - All that glitters
Delightful Challenges - Twinkle twinkle
