|My entry to the Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #130 |
and to the ColourQ Challenge #263.
This card got ColourQ Courtier from ColourQ Challenge.
I got this card idea when my older daughter was watching The Octonauts this one day. In that episode, it was Christmas time and the Octonauts visited Peso's (the penguin in the show) family in the Antarctic. Peso introduced his "family" which consisted many many relatives. I thought they looked so cute when they were all standing in a huge circle-like-shape - everyone looking a little bit different from one another. Isn't that what happens during Christmas time when family gathers together. The stamp is called Frost from Purple Onion Designs.
I found this perfect challenge for me called Merry Monday Christmas Challenge. I've been participating these different challenges to make Christmas cards. When it comes to the time to post them, I am always short of them, so this year I started early. LOL! It's theme this week is Silent Night evoking the calm, peaceful feeling of silent night before Christmas! The challenge's graphics are shown below. For me, the night before Christmas includes also the excited joy of the children when they know that the Christmas is just One night away! And that was the feeling that I also wanted to express with the penguins in this card. For background I tried to create a scene from here near Arctic during the cold and dark Christmas time. I know that penguins live in the antarctic, so that is a little bit controversial but isn't this just card making - it doesn't have to be real, right? Here's a close up from the little glitter that I added to mark the shine from the moon. I am also entering this card for the ColourQ Challenge #263, the color theme is based on their challenge.
Here are the graphics for the challenges.
Thank you for stopping by. Happy crafting!
