JB37, Deck the Halls!



"With boughs of holly, FA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA, LA!" Heehee! How is everyone today? I am one day closer to taking my Labor Day holiday...YEA!!! Where I work, we are open 24/7, 365, so holidays don't always fall on the days they do for everyone else! So, who's ready to deck the halls for Christmas. Right around the time the season changes to fall is when I get in the mood...but I have to wait a little longer! Anyhow, I know you're all here to see what I have created for the 37th prompt at Jingle Belles, where we were to do any or all of the following:






make a freestanding (2.5 x 3.5") Christmas themed Artist Trading Card

-OR-

add an ATC-sized element to your holiday card

-OR-

incorporate a playing card into your design

-OR-

use a recycled Christmas card (or an element from one) on your (newly made) holiday card


I did 2 of the 4...added an ATC-sized element to my card, and recycled a Christmas card. I used the rest of the torn piece of paper from last week's card, and made it match the slope of the snow on the card piece, added glitter glue along the edge for some sparkle, cut snowflakes from the card, and added them randomly around the penguin. A small sentiment from Studio G completes my card. I hope you all like it! :)
