I love seeing these cards that aren't the normal 'rectangle' like I make, wouldn't even know where to start to make one of these!! Those penguins are coloured beautifully and the red/white pattern paper makes a gorgeous background. And how cool are those Christmas lights, never seen those before, they are the most perfect embellishment for this card. So very happy you shared it with us at TIME OUT!
