CHNC challenge 312: cute or anything goes as long as it's Christmas

This is my design card for my CHNC challenge 312 - it seems unreal that the next challenge will start on Christmas Eve! This year has flown by - it doesn't seem long ago that I was saying the same kind of thing a year ago. And I find it quite incredible that at the end of this year I will have been running my weekly CHNC challenges for six years!

Back to the card that I've made for this week's challenge, using the cute Robyn's Fetish chip the penguin kindly supplied by them as one of the sponsors.

I coloured the image digitally and then printed and cut out. The backing paper is from The colours of Christmas vintage pad from The Works, which was mounted on to a piece of red sparly card and then on to a glossy red card blank. I added washi tape across the bottom, black and white sentiment strips from an old Making Cards freebie and little penguins from Paperchase.
