Bah Humbug Challenge 29

The challenge at Bah Humbug this week is torn paper and as I am still at sixes and sevens with the ongoing decorating work I have gone for something fairly simple. I have used some very glittery and thick handmade paper as the torn element which has left a very fluffy snowy look to the edges - it was very difficult to actually tear it though!  The background paper and penguins have been lying in one of my 'bits' boxes since last Christmas so I reckon this card will also qualify for inclusion in Judith's Forgotten Friday Challenge week 3. These and the sentiment are all from Polkadoodles, the penguins were printed onto pearlescent card, cut out and popped up on Pinflair glue gel.
