Penguin's Present

Good Morning,

Happy Tuesday to you! Hope that you are having a great week. This is going to be a quick post to share a card and then I have to get back to work.

I've used the new Whimsy Stamps rubber stamp Penguin's Present from the Meljen's Designs collection. He's super cute with his little boots and hat as he's waddling on his way with his gift box. He makes a great holiday or birthday image.

I've used the beautiful new Marjolaine papers from BG and then stitched the edges on the sewing machine. I was going for a more masculine feel for this card so I kept the layout and embellishments simple. The image was colored with copics and then I used chalks to create the background. I added some glittery touches with Stickles and then finished off with a couple of buttons.

This card fits the challenges at:
Ellephantastic  - Christmas / winter
Alphabet - g for glitter
Mami Doodles - anything goes
Stampin With The Dragon  - make it sparkle
Digi Doodle Shop's Best - animals or insects
Fab 'n' Funky - Christmas for children
Inktegrity - non traditional holiday colors

Thanks for stopping by today. Please be sure to stop in on Thursday for a new Whimsy Stamps release and blog hop....it's for our NEW artist!

Have a great day!
