JAI #279 Just add a sketch

Hello there,
I've been trying to avoid the fact but Christmas is rapidly starting to approach. I don't even want to think of how many few weeks it is! So expect to see a few more Christmas cards popping up here. Which explains why that when I saw this weeks Just Add Ink challenge the first thing I thought of was Christmas card. This week we have a Just Add Sketch challenge from Narelle.
The first thing I thought of when I saw that circle element was shaker card!

The next thought was - penguin is a snow storm!

So I embossed a flurry of snowflakes and then pulled out inks and brayer and got inky :) For my shaker I started by colouring my penguin adding a sprinkling of snowflakes around him and then piled on a mix of sequins and glitter and closed up the shaker. (Do you hold your breath when you do that? I do!).

Hope you can join in this week. Don't forget to check out the rest of the DT's take on the sketch.
