My Time to Craft - GDT - 'Spots AND Stripes'

Hello! Hope you are all well... where did the last week go? Lol - it seems to have gone by SO quickly!
 it's my 4th week as Guest Designer with

and the theme this week is 

'Spots AND Stripes' 
(you have to use both)

I decided to go for a Less is More style card... and also a change from square shape... I've digitally coloured the penguin image to match the papers... and added some Stardust Stickles... so a very quick card to make but I think it's kinda cute!!

 Image: Pink Petticoat - 'Ice Christmas'
Papers: Pink Petticoat - 'Dots' and 'Stripes'
Tag: Digi Stamp Boutique - 'Simple Tags'
Pom Pom Trim, Dew Drops and Blue Ribbon: The Ribbon Girl

hope you can pop over to My Time to Craft and see the rest of the Team's gorgeous creations! :-)

I would like to enter the following challenges:-
Fab'n Funky - 'Animals'
Stampin' For the Weekend - 'Anything Goes'
 CHNC Extra Challenge - June - 'Anything Goes Christmas'

 Is there anything good on TV this weekend? I watched the first part of The White Queen last Sunday... but wasn't very impressed :-(  did you see the loft she was in? it looked like it had been fitted out with Ikea... LOL... there was also some ivy on a wall and it looked suspiciously like a plastic garland bought from Florist!! I suppose it might get better.... after all....I didn't like Mr Selfridge at first!! ;-)
Thanks for all your lovely comments! Hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Take Care
 Love and Hugs

its more than 'kind of cute' Sue its fabulously cute! I love how it all matches (my kinda thing!) and I love how you added the stickles for ice. I also love the image, the papers, the sentiment.... are you feeling my vibes here!!
I'd recorded all the episodes of Nashville and not watched any till the other day - OMG!! I've now watched 15 this week. I love it and I'm in love with Deacon! Its the last one next week, maybe you can watch them on Netflix or something. And I still think you should search for Lipstick Jungle on streaming as I know you will LOVE it!!

A brilliant card Sue, love that icy blue and you are so clever with your digital colouring. A perfect little Christmas card I'd say. Can't help on the telly front as I don't really watch other than me soaps, but hey isn't Neighbours spicing up nicely with Mike back on the scene. Why is Kate confused, no competition if you ask me, Mas should be binned!!!Jx
