Hello!  Saturday means it’s time for a new challenge at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown, where we celebrate Christmas all year round. Each week we offer a cardmaking challenge to help you create Christmas or wintry cards so you’ll have a bunch of cards ready to send when the holiday season rolls around.  We’re kicking the month off with a sketch challenge.

This month’s sketch was drawn as a portrait-oriented rectangle, but I’ve squashed it down into a landscape-oriented rectangle for my card.  I created a little scene on the left panel and used patterned paper for the right panel.  The penguins were stamped onto a scrap of white cardstock, colored, fussy cut, and then assembled to the snowy background.  I don’t think my camera captured it in the photo, but the cardstock I used for the snowy ground has a hint of shimmer to it.

I’m entering my card into the current Lawnscaping challenge.
