I also made this for the Featured Stamper Challenge (FS516). I chose to case THIS card. I kept the holiday theme and trio of penguins, but I used different images, different colors & a little different layout.
Don’t you just love these adorable little penguins? They look so happy! I couldn’t wait to color them…and I love giving them rosy little cheeks and bellies. I put together parts of two greeting (the little Thanks fit much better in the space than the cursive thanks that comes w/ the Much part) and layered a die cut Snow to go between the two words. The snowflake designer paper was split to let the other paper show through & I added some snowflakes from the Snowflake Reverse die. I had every intention of adding some stickles or sparkly gems to the snowflakes, but just totally forgot.

Here’s a look at the inside..I’ll add a greeting when I know who’ll be receiving it. Below it are the Copics I used.penguin-thanks-inside-00194
Please be sure to comment on all the DT will be so appreciated & also increase your chances of winning!
