RI DCC Challenge - Christmas in July!

We have a new Designer's Choice Challenge going on over at The House That Stamps Built starting today. The new challenge is from Maki and it's Christmas in July! Boy is it hard for me to think Christmas when it's almost 100 degrees outside! And not November...BUT, I did it and have a card using these cute little penguins (8811-K, Joy Penguins)!  I stamped the penguins using Versafine Onyx Black and colored their beaks, feet and stars using Copic Spica glitter pens.  The green and gold holly paper is from The Paper Studio.  For my ribbon/bow, I cut a scalloped circle out of burgundy felt and attached it and the gold painted chipboard button to my bow using some twine.

Please be sure to head over to The House That Stamps Built to take a look at the great cards the rest of the design team has made and to find out the rules for playing along in the challenge for a chance to win a sheet of stamps from Repeat Impressions!

Thanks for stopping by!

Lovely way you have framed the penguins and I like the way you have layered your button embellishment.
