Link in the chain - November

It's reveal day at Card Chain Challenge. Mine has gone over the Pond to Greta this time. 

I intended to use the sketch but I did it from memory rather than actually looking at it as I created so it’s an approximation! I also used the themes of polar animals and snowflakes. I think you can just about see the silvery stamped snowflakes on the right hand side of the card, they show up better at some angles than others. 

I used an oval die to cut an aperture to ink my central “frame” for the penguins and doodled round it with a gel pen just to add some extra definition. The sentiment is a die cut but other than that it’s a single layer card again, my usual preference for Card Chain Challenge cards!

I'm waiting longingly for the first snow. I can already marvel at the first snowflakes on your card. Beautiful card in frosty colors.

What cute penguins framed in your pretty sparkly snowflake panels - love the snow under their feet and the lovely blue hats and scarves!
