Swinging Penguin

Last night we had a fantastic thunderstorm that went on for hours and as I couldn't sleep, I decided to make a card combining a few challenges.

The swinging penguin is a digi from Whimsy stamps (coloured with alcohol markers)  and I created the NOEL digitally.  There is lots of clear glitter on the lights, streamers and letters but of course it doesn't show in the photo.

I wouldn't have thought of going for a Christmas card using these colors, but it sure works! Your card fits every challenge you've made it for, and for different reasons too.
