We are going to follow along the traditional "Twelve Days of Christmas" song. 
Since today is the "Third Day"of our challenge event, it is the "Three French Hens" day, according to the song: Our challenge today is to use an ANIMAL!  
Here's what I came up with, using this fab, adorable penguin image from Bugaboo Stamps: Poppi Xmas Ornament.

This easel card base is made using my Nesties Curvy Rectangles dies. I colored the image in PSE. :0) I printed the image, and then hand-cut around it. It is layered on some Imaginisce papers (all of the papers used on this are by Imaginisce). I punched the snowflake paper with my Nesties and then outlined it, as carefully as I could, with some Stickles. The border is punched, both sides, with an MS Snowflake border punch. The snowflakes are also an MS punch, but from a white glitter card stock. The brads are from my stash, and the sentiment was printed on card stock, then I cut it with my Nestie and ran it through my Cuttlebug with the Winter Frills embossing folder.

Now, we'd love for you to join us, so put together a great Christmas card, using an animal, and join us!  Head over to the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog to enter your creation, and you could WIN some Bugaboo Stamps Images!
Thanks for stopping by! Happy Crafting!
