Penguin Love

Hi!  Cheryl has a post below this too.  I made this kind of last minute until 2 in the morning.  I don't know what I was thinking.  Usually I don't stay up that late to make a card.  I was feeling kind of restless again and thought I should make something since I haven't for a while, and I wanted to participate in Claudia & Co.'s tag challenge too. 

I used Puddle Jumpers Winter Ella from Claudia & Co. because my daughter has a love for penguins.  I didn't get a chance to make her a card with this stamp at Xmas time so I figure now is a good time.  I know it's kind of Xmas-y but I think it would be good for Valentine's too.  

Tag is a Spellbinders die and the snowflakes were cut in felt with Die-namics dies from MFT.  If you look closely, there is a whole lot of shine on the card.  Maybe a bit too much.  I wanted to try the Frost Shimmer Spritz.  That is mostly on the red tag.  I also sprayed on the Sparkle Shimmer Spritz but it really shot out all over Ella.  There is also some Stickles on the snowflakes and white felt heart that I just cut out myself.  

There's the little penguin that my daughter loves so much!

Thanks for reading!  Have a great week!

Your card is adorable! When you first said penguin - I thought "huh, what penguin?", lol! There he is. And just FYI - I tried commenting before, but for some reason, the comment box likes to jump around, or I'm going crazy, lol.

Very sweet card. Great use of the baker's twine. I really like how you tucked your tag behind it. Happy to have you at Claudia & Co. Come back soon!
