a Cool holiday

I was looking for inspiration for an UBER-quick holiday card and I found it in an ATC I received in a swap last week. I just enlarged the design, changed the stamps and Whahlah!
This card took me under 3 minutes to make (I timed it!). Score and fold your white base, cut a piece of PP, punch out an oval, stamp it, add some glue, sprinkle with glitter, punch a hole in the top, tie on a piece of ribbon, stamp the sentiment!
The glitter is hard to see in this photos but it is the nicest, most sparkly glitter I've ever used. I bought it at Verve Visual and really like the brand.
Penguin stamp from SU, sentiment from Papertrey, PP from DCWV, ribbon from my stash, Ranger archival black ink.
To "up" the design, I might add a black mat under the PP next time, and maybe stamp the sentiment on a piece of raised red CS. But for quick and simple, this was perfect.
