Penguin Christmas Cards

There are still several Christmas in July challenges going on right now, so I've made another Christmas card. This time I've used one of my favorite penguin images by Bugaboo called Little Penguin Winter - Decorate Tree. The image was colored with Copic markers and then die cut using a stitched rectangle die by Lil' Inkers. To play along with day 4 of Bugaboo's Christmas in July Bingo Challenge I selected the middle row across, which includes: Sparkly, Bugaboo image and Lime Green. The layout for this Penguin Christmas Card is from this weeks sketch #360 at Tuesday Morning Sketches designed by Jessi Fogan. I love using tilted panels and this one worked perfectly with the image. For the patterned papers I used a stripe by Doodlebug Designs and Shiny Trees by Recollections from their Jingle Bells paper pad. Instead of using buttons as the sketch suggested I made three circle embellishments with little round die cuts and lime green sparkly stickers by Jolee's. The last addition was the Merry Christmas sentiment from the retired Good Greetings stamp set by Stampin' Up!. That's it!

Thanks for stopping by and enjoy the rest of your day!
