Polar Pals Card for A La Card Monkeys fun Button Sketch

Hi Blogging Friends!! Do you love Christmas Cards with cute animals!! I DO! I just can't help myself with it comes to cute animal stamp sets. I have had this set for years one of the first sets I ever bought. I have made some cute cards over the years with these cute little Penguin guys, they just make me Happy!!

When I seen this sketch I knew I was going to use these Penguins, the rest of the card just fell into place for me. It was a fun card to make.
I have to say this sketch is one of my favorites. I love buttons and I collect them, I have thousands of them in Jars in every room of the house. One time my Husband brought me home a Huge jar, I am not sure what size people call it but its an industrial size pickle jar!! Wow!! I was so excited to have it.

I added some of the glimmer paper snow flakes behind a few white buttons. I cut out the banner for the penguins to hold.
