It's a Very Quirky Christmas!

Evening Quirky people! I'm back from dog walking, dog/house and baby sitting! Yay, baby Niamh is growing very fast! And smells so much nicer than a dawg!!
Anyway, it must be time for another Quirky challenge over on the Quirky Crafts Challenge blog , so lets get on with it!!
 This fortnight, it's my turn to come up with the theme and this time we're sponsored by my favourites...
Bugaboo Digital Stamps
who are offering the winner 7 digi's of their choice!!
 And Crafty Ribbons!!
who will be offering some lovely ribbons!! (of course!) The challenge is...
Christmas In August...with a Twist! 
What's the twist??? Easy! To make a Christmas card or anything else Christmasy and add at least 3 things from the cheesy looking circle at the bottom of this post (don't forget to tell us what you've used!)
Here's my card. I started off with a silvery white pearl card and then went a bit lilac to go with the non- traditional Christmas colours. I've used a Bugaboo image (of course!) these two cute bench buddy penguins that you can find HERE, Little Penguin Winter bench, which is almost a scene without having to add anything else. And to make it pop I've 3D-ed (decoupaged) the image.
First, I printed out the whole scene, then just cut out the bench and the buddies with bits missing and then just the penguins, with more bits missing!
I've coloured the scene with lots of shades of lilac and purple Promarkers, I've even coloured the tiny bits of lace with a lilac Promarker so it would match.
I've used lilac/ purple Pink Petticoat papers and Bazzil card.  I've also added a few punched out tiny purple holly leaves, added gems and pearls (for the snow) as well as sparkly flower-soft and a sparkly twisted lacy lilac cord.
 There's a little bit of  silver micro glitter, silvery white flower-soft as well as some Stickles glitter glue plus I've used some triangle layers.
The font I've used is a freebie, it's called Curlz MT download it HERE or just Google the name. It's used alot in advertising.  I thinkthat's about it! (I'm sure no one reads any of this, but they might!!)
Hope you come and join in with my challenge over on Quirky Crafts Challenge Blog!!!
