MTSC Penguin Love


Today I am sharing a card I made with Mercy's Tuesday Sketch Challenge. I love Mercy's Sketches!!!

Edited to Add: I don't EVER CASE a person without giving them proper credit, however it has been brought to my attention that my card today is almost identical to this hot chocolate holder from Ilina Crouse. I don't remember seeing hers, but it looks so similar to what I have made I must have. Please head over to her blog and check out her fabulous creations.

I started the card with a base of bashful blue and followed that with some whisper white and then real red that I embossed with my cuttlebug and embossing folder. The center element is made up of whisper white and bashful blue. I used a snow flake stamp from the "Serene Snowflake" set and stamped with white craft and then embossed with white embossing powder.

The penguin, ice, sign and sentiment are all from the "Cold & Cuddly" Set. I stamped them onto whisper white and cut out. I used some ribbon from the ribbon originals across the bottom and added the sentiment over the ribbon.

Well, that is all for today, thanks so much for stopping by and HAPPY STAMPING!!!!!
