A Penguin Christmas

Isn't this penguin so cute? I just love him! He is from the SugarPeas set 'Have an Ice Day' and it's a great set that's very versatile. This particular card was made with Christmas in mind, as the gals over at Jingle Belles wanted us to use something new, and I just recently got this set.

The layout is from the current sketch at the SugarPea blog and once again I used Lawn Fawn paper from the Snow Day collection. I just love these papers, they are so cute! I went with a black accent since I've got a penguin on my card. It's funny, I get asked all the time if we have penguins in Alaska....um, that would be a no folks! Polar bears yes, moose yes, puffins yes but sadly, penguins are at the other pole :)

The panel with the penguin is popped up with dimensionals and I added some chunky glitter to his hat. The card still looked a bit empty so I added some Basic Black candy dots to finish it off. Inside the card I used sentiments from the set to say "From Our Home To Yours Happy Holidays".
