It's the middle of summer and I have another Christmas card to share! I bought this Stamping Bella stamp, Mr. Penguin goes for a ride, over a year ago because I thought it was SO cute! Which it is - but I keep forgetting that I really don't like to color very much (!) so this is the first time I've inked it up. I colored the image with Copics. I thought a little girl like this would have a sweet little pink winter coat with accents of purple - so my color pallet was decided! I die cut the image with a Stitched Edges Rectangle die from Waltzingmouse and layered it over a piece of patterned paper with foam dots. The sentiment is from Nutcracker Sweets from WMS.
The tree has little round ornaments on the stamp but I decided to glue flower sequins over them. Since this card is hot off the press - you can still see the glue in the centers - when it dries that will be clear! They add a lovely shine to the card as well as a little dimension!
I'm linking my card to the Merry Monday Challenge - create a Christmas card with a penguin on it (this is the ONLY stamp I have with a penguin!)
