P..P..P..Pick up a Penguin!


I'm sharing a card I made for the Mama Elephant and Me Challenge this month Holiday Cards and Tags

I decided to combine both aspects of the challenge by placing a tag onto a card...

I used distress inks over a Simon Says Stamp stencil and die cut with an ME tag. I popped up the ME Penguin on his little iceberg using foam tape and also some little glossy accented stars. I then placed the whole thing onto a bokeh effect panel stamped in 2nd generation distress inks and gold acrylic paint...the paint didn't work so well so for more sparkle I embossed the greeting in gold and put on a ME dainty bow in gold glitter!

I wasn't sure where this card would end up going when I first started it but it turned out OK I think!

Thanks for visiting today!
