Hello!  Once again, it’s stash challenge week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown, where we invite our challenge participants to use particular items from their crafting stash to create a Christmas or wintry card.  This time the chosen item is enamel dots.

I’ve combined a couple of other challenges in with this one.  The layout for this card is the current sketch at Freshly Made Sketches.  I also tied in tomorrow’s Hope You Can Cling To challenge requirements – but since that challenge hasn’t gone live yet, I can’t give any details on that!  Heh heh heh.  I’ve used one of my favorite little penguin images – oh what am I saying, I love all my little penguin images.  🙂  I did add a bit to the sketch by working in my enamel dots and by using a die-cut snowflake to mat the penguin.  The sentiment is from an older sentiment set by Purple Onion Designs.  I looked on their website to try to get the name of the set, but I couldn’t find it, so I’m guessing it’s been retired.
