CHNC challenge 269: cute

This is my card for my CHNC challenge 269: cute (or anything goes as long as it's Christmas) - I'd love you to click on  the link, hop on over to the challenge and join in the fun ... it really isn't too early to make Christmas creations - you'll be thankful later on in the year if you do.

For my card I've used the cute Robyn's Fetish chip the penguin image kindly supplied by Robyn's Fetish as one of the challenge sponsors. I coloured digitally using Microsoft Paint and cut out the image on my Scan n Cut, also cutting the sentiment panel. The grosgrain Merry Christmas ribbon was from Hobbycraft. The background paper is an unknown piece which I think came as part of a magazine freebie. Everything was mounted on to a black card blank.
