Holiday Penguins

I've had the Wild About You set on my wish list for the longest time and finally decided to get it recently. I've had a lot of fun playing around with it over the last few days. I've had several Wild About You cards saved in my favorites over at SCS, so I decided to try out one on Saturday. This card is really a CASE of two different cards. You can see them here and here.

My card is a 4 1/4" square of Bashful Blue. The background layer is a piece of vellum that was embossed with the Snowflakes embossing folder and adhered to a square of Basic Black cardstock with black eyelets. I layered Black Gingham ribbon onto Bashful Blue Taffeta and then added the penguin focal image. The "snow" at the bottom of the penguins was created with white foam paint. I haven't had much luck finding puffy paint, so this will do for now. The sentiment is from Fancy Flexible Phrases and was embossed with Irridescent Ice Embossing Powder.

Thanks for looking!
