Penguin's Present

I have been out of commission for the last few days but I am back now with a card that I want to share with you.

My card uses this adorable little penguin with gift available from Mo's Digital Pencil. I knew when I first saw this little guy that he was going to need to become part of my collection. I have coloured him using my Copics and punched him out with a Spellbinders label die. I have inked the background with antique linen distress ink for contrast.

The card has been put together following the themes of three different challenges. At Stamp, Scrap, Doodle the challenge is to make a card with no flowers, as the challenge at Anything Goes this week is let it snow, this snowflake paper from MME is the perfect choice and works wonderfully with the colours I have used on the image. A scrap of Basic Grey damask paper added the perfect contrast to balance the blue. I have stamped and embossed my sentiment and finished the card with minimal embellishment to keep it simple. The challenge at DP2 was to use three punches. I have punched and layered a scalloped circle and several snowflake to create an embellishment and topped it with a little snowflake button for some sparkle.

I want to thank you for stopping by. I hope that you too will have a chance to try some of these challenges. Happy crafting and have a great day.
