Penguin Celebration. Hmmmm.

I had to laugh when I saw the challenge on Stamptacular this week - Penguin Celbration. "Did you know that April 25th is "World Penguin Day?" Well, in honor of all the penguins we, at Stamptacular, thought we'd celebrate! For this week's challenge you will create a card or project that reminds us of a penguin."

Then I happened to go through my stamp folders and found this...

Well, you see, now I basically had to make a card!

Coloring was done with Copics and was a breeze, just some soft grey accents. Then I added snow with Ice Stickles, Sakura clear glitter to cymbals ans clear glaze to polar bears nose.

Patterned papers are from Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage which I had still out from one of my previous projects. It pays to be messy!

The matting and Spellbinders pendant were versamarked and heat embossed with Vanilla Ice and Sparkly Black. White cardstock on bottom was embossed with Sizzix plate, brayered with versamark and heat embossed with Vanilla Ice again.

Then I pleated some polka dot satin ribbon from my stash and added some gems from my stash. 

And the card was born! lol

Thank you for looking and happy crafting!
