Pink Penquin

 Pink Penquin - Todays challenge at Creative Card Crew is sponsored by Marianne Designs. If you have not heard of them, they are a fabulous die and stamp creator. I own only 1 of their dies, shown here, but I plan to buy a lot more of them soon. I like them a great deal.

Our challenge for this fortnight is.... Anything Goes!!!

For my card, I used a paper package that I have had for a while, but have only just rediscovered. It came with ribbon and stickers, the candy cane is one of the matching stickers. The paper is K and Company's Peppermint Twist.

My image is Mayzy Art. Mayzy is a new artist and her images are so urban, almost like Kenny K, but with a southwest kick to them. This image is Adeline with Penquins.

The snowflake was cut with my Cricut and I added glitter to the cut image. You know I have to have glitter somewhere on the card. LOL

Everything was inked with Worn Lipstick distress ink.

I added a die cut from our sponsor Marianne Designs. They have such awesome dies and I use this one quite a bit. I like to add gemstones to each of the leaves.

I finished the card off with 3 buttons.
