52 C.C.T. Colour Challenge


This week's challenge for 52 Christmas Card Throwdown is to make a card using shades of blue. I hope this little penguin isn't feeling too blue. I think he is looking a bit pensive though. Lots of shades of blue here - Soft Sky, Midnight Muse, Night of Navy and some Island Indigo Baker's Twine. The background is stamped with snowflakes from Gossamer Blue's Get Happy set and the cute penguin is from Avery Elle's More Stories. The sentiment is Stampin' Up's White Christmas.

Mr Penguin is stamped in Midnight Muse and then clear embossed. His beak and feet have been given a touch of sparkle with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen and I have added a couple of snowflakes from Stampin' Up's Frosted Sequins. I chose the SU Sweet Taffy DSP because it reminded me of an ice floe!

Hope to see you over at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown! April x

  6. Well of course Mr. Penguin is looking thoughtful - it's like the sentiment says, he's "thinking of" the recipient! :D It's a darling card, April!
