Monday's TLC was to pick any challenge from the 2012. I chose TLC370, Faux Patina, because I had enjoyed it and always meant to have another go. Plus it gave me a good Christmassy background :D.
A2 base. I embossed some white card with Constellation inked with Bundled Sage. I added more sponging with Tea Dye and Antique Photo, plus a bit of Fired Brick around the edges, and added some gold and some Verdigris EP. I added stitching lines with a red Sharpie.
TCP penguins stamped and embossed on watercolour paper, then coloured with H2Os, and a touch of Stickles for their crowns. Sentiment is from Printworks. I used Spellbinders Mega Ovals to cut it, and added some sponging with Tea Dye, Frayed Burlap and Tumbled Glass while in the die, and a touch of red round the very edge. I added a star which was silver, so I embossed it with gold EP, and added a red gem in the centre.
I was sad that my most favourite TCP penguins were retired when I finally got to place my first order - but these ones are nearly as cute, and DH was really tickled by this card.

Super cute card! (Got a chuckle from your Wise Guys title! That's what my grandson told his mom after a Sunday School class recently...mom, did you know that 3 wise guys followed a star to see Baby Jesus!!)
