Cozy little Penguins

Happy Tuesday!!

Last night I decided to color this cute Lili of the Valley Stamp, and today I decided to make a card with it, since I wanted to enter a few challenges.

It has been been stamped with black stazon ink on hot press watercolor paper and colored with distress inks. Not really happy how I colored the igloo, still need some practice coloring with these inks.

Still didn't get to buy new christmas papers, so I used some old Basic Grey Designer Papers. Blue card stock is from Stampin Up.
I embellished with some punched out snowflakes using a Martha Stewart punch, added some tiny rhinestones to the sentiment and then star dust stickles. The little dots around the image were stamped with one of SU's retired "itty bitty backgrounds".

The sentiment is from the set "Winter Letter Seals" by Whimsy Stamps. And speaking of Whimsy Stamps, don't forget tomorrow the new Whimsy Inspirations magazine is going live, it's absolutely free and I can tell you it's filled with awesome creations and several great tutorials.

And here are the three challenges I wanted to enter my card to:
Thanks so much for visiting,
enjoy your day!!
