Crafts Galore Encore December 2017

I hope you have all been keeping well and are looking forward to a festive month. I've had another busy month trying to catch up with commitments and fulfilling duties. Today I have a card to show you that I made for the December challenge on the
Thank you to everyone who joined in with November's challenge. The winners are on the challenge blog's 'winner's page'. This is a month long challenge and you can enter up to three times. A full list of rules are on the challenge blog.
Our theme every month is the popular
"Anything Goes"

Our sponsor this month is:
Fred She Said
who are offering a $10 gift voucher for the winner.

I have made a pyramid table decoration for Christmas.

This design has proved very popular at my Trimcraft demos this season.

I started with three 8"x 8" squares of card. Each one was scored diagonally then glued together.

I covered the three sides with a First Edition paper from the Gilded Winter paper pad and inked all the edges with VersaMagic Sea Breeze chalk ink.

I chose the Dancing Penguin image from Fred She Said. I doubled the image and reversed one of them to create a cute couple. I printed out three pairs and coloured them with my Copics. I cut all the penguins out and fixed them onto the three sides of the pyramid with foam pads.

I decorated the sides with ribbon, snowflake die-cuts and a die-cut sentiment.

Now please visit the  Crafts Galore Encore challenge blog to see the wonderful projects and cards created by the rest of the talented team and to enter your
