We are going to follow along the traditional "Twelve Days of Christmas" song.  
Since today is the "Fourth Day"of our challenge event, it is the "Four Calling Birds" day, according to the song: Our challenge today is to use a BIRD!  Now, I know I used a Poppi image yesterday for the "animal" challenge, but he IS an animal, and he IS a used a different Poppi image today! lol! :0) Have I mentioned that I really LOVE penguins??! 
Here's what I came up with, using this fab, adorable penguin image from Bugaboo StampsPoppi Xmas Stocking.

I kept this card CAS because I want to be able to mail it a long distance, and....well.....I just don't trust the mail system with anything that has embellishes like brads and such! So, this card uses lots of paper layers, and that's it! :0) I used some Imaginisce papers, and a ribbon. You know what?! The sentiment is stamped! the "real deal" rubber! No kidding! I haven't busted into my rubber stamp stash since I-don't-know-when! Can you believe it?! lol!

Now, we'd love for you to join us, so put together a great Christmas card, using a bird, 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!
