Lemon Shortbread - New Design Team Member

I am SUPER excited today as I get to show you my first card as part of the Lemon Shortbread Design Team.

Vera recently held a Design Team call and I thought I would apply.   I didn't think I had a chance but I was more than excited to get a message from Vera inviting me to join the Lemon Shortbread Design Team.  I came across Vera's stunning images when I was on the Sweet Pea Stamps and Sweet Pea Stampers Design Teams a few years back and I thought they were beautiful and very useful images.

The challenge this fortnight is "anything goes".

I have a "thing" about penguins so I had to use this gorgeous penguin for my first card as part of the Design Team.  It is called "Penguin Christmas Tree" and I have used Promarkers to colour him in and used Pinflair pearl wands in blue, gold and pearl to add dots to the Christmas tree and star.  The penguin's hat is finished off with some Stickles glitter glue as Christmas would not be Christmas without some sparkle and shine!!

The backing papers are from Summertime Designs.

I have finished the card off with a stamped sentiment, velvet ribbon, Christmas text ribbon, a large poinsettia, some Chloe's Creations greenery (stamped onto heat resistant acetate, embossed and then cut out), two flowers made by a friend in Canada and frosted berry centres added to the middle of the flowers that I got in a Craftezee workshop a few years back.
