Colour Dare 467 - Christmas Penguins

Welcome to Colour Dare Challenge 467!

The challenge this week is to use ALL 3 colours shown - black, white and silver are free to use. 

I need Christmas cards - many of them - so even though this colour scheme is far from typical Christmas colours, I challenged myself to use them for a holiday card. 

I stamped some penguins and coloured their hats and scarves in the three colours required. This card was turned into a shaker with a snowfall embossed front. I die cut a stitched border to represent a snowbank behind each of the penguins and filled each area with a filler that looks like snow. The sentiment was stamped and added between the bottom images. A few silver gems were added around the card. There is a sentiment inside that reads "It's penguinning to look a lot like Christmas". 

Come and join us at Colour Dare and show us how you use the colours shown above.
