Happy Monday! I am sharing a card today that puts a smile on my face because I happen to love penguins and this adorable stamp set from Taylored Expressions, Penguin Pals, is right up my alley. I had a busy craft afternoon/evening yesterday and whipped this up to enter in the current sketch challenge. Here is TESC149
that was our inspiration and I love the layering of paper this one calls for.

I stamped the penguin guy and gal, the musical notes and sentiment in Memento's Tuxedo Black ink and die cut my panel with a Classic Rectangle Die and backed it with a Scalloped Rectangle Die in a sweet pink. ;) I selected Copic markers to match the DP and colored my pals and made the snow for their hats with liquid applique and crystal glitter. The panel was framed with Ranger's Flamingo Liquid Pearls and while that was drying I stamped a snowflake from the Winter Wonderland set in two different ink colors, Rosebud & Bahama Blue, and used Taylor's coordinating dies to die cut them. The DP's used on my card are from MME's 12 days of Christmas which I found at Taylored Expressions in her wonderful paper department. I {heart} paper and she has a large variety of designer and patterned paper which makes me a happy girl.  

Hope you like it and comments are always welcome, thanks for stopping by. Have a great day! :-)

These are the cutest penguins ever! If you look at the penguin on the right long enough, it almost looks like he's stomping his little foot. LOL!
