JAI 244 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
is anyone feeling like Christmas is arriving just that little bit too fast??! And the shops are ridiculously busy already at 9 am on Saturday mornings!! Thankfully I'm well prepared on the present front but not doing so good on the handcrafted side - eeek! Luckily I have another Christmas card for the stash courtesy of this week's Just Add Ink challenge - this week we want you to Just Add a Sketch - a real fun one from Tina.
I was turning over the idea of threes, what three could I use rather than a tree? When this idea popped into my head.

It was a bit fiddly to put this together but sometimes it's nice to just putter and fiddle - and to have the time to do so! To give the penguins some depth I stamped the two little guys on the base and then diecut and coloured the big guy. He and the frame are mounted up on dimensionals. A bit of sparkle is essential for Christmas so I added a big glimmer snowflake frame and lots of tiny dots of dazzling diamonds. Even though it's likely to be just a bit warm (we are talking mid summer here ;) at Christmas the appeal of snowy images is still strong.

Hope you can join in the fun at Just Add Ink this week. Do check out the rest of the DT for some fun inspiration for the sketch.
