Playful Little Penguin

Hello my crafty friends! I hope your weekend is off to a great start. Finals week has really kept me busy and between grading and making my student's Dvd's I have much to do this weekend! 

I wanted to share today a Christmas card I made using a Too Cute By Jessica file called "Playful Little Penguins". 

I started with an A2 card base of shimmery ivory. I cut the little penguin out at about 3.25 inches. I used some Christmas paper for his scarf and the top note shape which is from the Cricut Elegant Edges cartridge. I stretched it to get the right size on Design Space. 

The adorable sentiment is from Craftin Desert Diva's Get Your Jingle on Stamp Set. I used the SVG that comes with it. The ribbon is from my stash and the sparkly candy cane embellishment is from Recollections.

I added some eyeleashes and pink chalk for the cheeks..... Some bling for the holly and a pom pom for the little Santa hat. Lastly I brushed the hat and parts of the scarf with my Wink of Stella pen for extra sparkle. I need to get another one since I've almost used it up!!
