Its know what that means!

Thats right! Monday's mean another challenge over at Christmas Stampin' All Year Long, and today marks challenge #20 . This week Vicki of Summerthyme Studio hosted the challenge and she said to "creatively use buttons and ribbons to embellish your card". Challenges like this really get me thinking outside of the box. As I've said before, I'm really not one to use a lot of things on my cards. Maybe some ribbon here or there but I just have a hard time adding embellishments. It's a mental block I seem to have :)

One of my favorite SU sets is an older one called Penguin Pals. I absolutely ADORE penguins and these little guys are just too cute. I knew I wanted to use them as soon as I read the challenge. I did have a hard time breaking down that barrier and using buttons but I did manage to incorporate some, plus used some ribbon. Here is the card I came up with. Sorry the pictures arent that great. Trying to photograph this was a bit tricky! Its very sparkly and pretty IRL!
