Penguin Joy

This is the new stamp I picked up at Michael's last week. It's made by Stampendous. Very, very cute. I seem to have a thing for penguins and crabs when it comes to stamping!

I followed one of the sketches from Angel's blog Angelosity. She is counting down to her birthday and posting a sketch each day. You can read the details on her blog...but it has chances to win blog candy AND great sketches (and you all KNOW how much I love sketches!)

Here is the card I came up with:

I flipped the sketch so it was vertical and not horizontal. I used the cuttlebug snowflake embossing plate on the blue background. I colored under the penguins with light blue to simulate ice and then used glitter on that area as well. I used the huge decorative staples instead of regular staples. The "joy" word is from CTMH (an old retired set). The striped mini brad is from Queen & Co...and it went perfectly with the ribbon (which was from Michael's).

Hope you like it!

I love this ribbon on this card. I would never have thought to use red and white striped and it just goes with the colorful, joyful nature of this card. The whole thing is gorgeous! TFS
