A Very Cute Penguin!

Hello everyone
I hope you are well and having a good weekend.

Yesterday I showed you the Christmas card I made for my younger daughter.  Here is the card I made for my older daughter using another adorable penguin from Pink Gem Designs.

I placed a sheet of glittered vellum onto of my patterned paper and then added an embossed frame. 
For some reason my camera doesn't like pink, this is much prettier in real life!

I am pleased to say both of my beautiful girls were thrilled with their cards, the smile on their faces when they opened them was just magical! I honestly feel that I am a lucky mum to have such wonderful children!



Items Used:
Digi Stamp - Pink Gem Designs Cute Penguin coloured with Promarkers
Sentiment - LOTV Christmas sentiment tags
Paper -  Forever Friends Kraft Notes
Papermania Holly Flourish Glitter Vellum
Embossing Folders - Crafter's Companion Snowflakes
 Cuttlebug snowflake dots
Joy Crafts Winter Wishes Snowflake
Woodware snowflake punch
 Hobbyhouse Rhinestone Sparklers



I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:
In the Pink - Embossing ( not sure if I have enough pink - please feel free to delete if not!)
Winter Wonderland - Embossing
Little Miss Muffet - You've Been Framed!
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop and look at my blog today, I really do appreciate it and love to read any comment you may wish to make.
I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend
bye for now
hugs
