Colour Crazy Challenge Blog - Friday 26 June 2020

It is time for another challenge over at the Colour Crazy Challenge Blog.

The weekly topic is always "anything goes".
This week we are lucky that we are sponsored by "Jan's Digi Stamps". 
This week I decided to make a Christmas card as this fun image called "Brighten the Holidays" spoke to me.  I have used the image and a sentiment you get with the image.

I have coloured the image in with Promarkers and added Stickles glitter glue to the penguin's mittens and also the earmuffs of one penguin.  I used a light bauble stamp for the corner and coloured them in red and green like the image and went around all the lights in Glossy Accents.

The backing papers are from my "Here Comes Christmas CD" by Polkadoodles.  It is one of my go-to Christmas CDs as I love the backing papers.

I have used a Lisa Horton banner die and cut out banners from the scraps of paper and card and layered these underneath the image.  

I have finished the card off quite simply with some red Nuvo pearl drops.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
