Sweet Dreamers' Challenge: Christmas Card with Animals

Hi friends,
Today I have the Dreamer's challenge card to share with ya.

This week our challenge was to create a Christmas card with an animal on it. I thought Oh, cool maybe I'll stamp a reindeer or something. So I looked through my stamp stash & realized I don't have ANY Christmas stamp sets with animals on it! Deer? Where did I get the idea that I had any deer stamps? Must be stamp dreaming! Finally, I found this one- the only one I have. But, isn't it sooo cute! Luv those little penguins jumping rope with the lights!

Here are the deets:
This is a gatefold-style card. I ran the white CS in the CB embossing folder to create the look of snowballs. The Penguins are colored in with a Sakura black glaze pen which gives them that slick penguin-y look. I added liquid appliqué for the little ends of their hats, and added Stickles to the light bulbs to make them sparkle & look like they're lit up :) ~~~>Bummer you can't tell in the pic :( The snowflake border is a Martha Stewart punch. Not your traditional Christmas colors, but wintery, don't ya think?

Thanks so much for peekin' at my penguin pals today! Be sure to visit my fellow Dreamers to check out their creations- VERY talented group of ladies :) I'm off to a day full of basketball games for my oldest son. He's got a tournament today & I've gotta go cheer him on. No, I'm not the crazy mom who yells at the refs.....anymore (just kidding :)---> Gotta go!
