It's Cold Outside!

I guess it is a little cold outside today but not overly cold as winter is almost over down here in Australia and I am beginning to look forward to Spring.

Today's card is for the weekly sketch challenge over on SCS, this week I decided to play with one of my new Elzybell Stamps I received in the mail yesterday ... this cute penguin is one of the new Christmas stamps which were released recently.

To create this card I used the snow dots cuttlebug embossing folder to create texture on the white panel on the left of the card. I also used my new Martha Stewart Doily Lace Edge Punch to create my border on the middle navy piece. I don't seem to have many navy brads, but I did discover I had some glitter ones so I added them to the top left corner of my card.

Stamps: Fishing Penguin - Elzybells; Sentiment - The Cat's Pajamas
Paper: White; Bashful Blue, Night of Navy & DP - SU
Other: Black Ink; Soft Sky SU Ink; Glitter Brads; Doily Lace Edge Punch; Glitter Glue; Bashful Blue Grosgrain Ribbon; Copics
