Penquin Happiness

I started working on my Christmas cards about a week ago and came to a quick halt.  I knew I wanted to use penquins on the front but once I colored in the images the rest of the card just fell apart.  I couldn't find a good patterned paper to use and the colors seemed all wrong.

This morning I saw the sketch over at Try Stampin' on Tuesday and then it just all seemed to click.  I needed to change my card base from a red to a neutral of grey and then everything started working.  I love that something as simple as a sketch can spark my creativity and get the card finished.  Now to make about 20 or so more!!
Here is my finished card.  The twine I used has silver thread running through it.  To bad the picture doesn't really show that.  As you can see I did change it just a tad bit.  I love this top note die from Stampin' Up! and I really wanted to use it on this card.  Since my image is so large it fit better than using the strips.

I like to stamp as much as I can on the inside of my cards.  I'll still add a personal message but it makes it so much easier to get a huge amount done.

  1. What a fun Christmas card, Diana! Your penguins are so cute! Don't you love it when a sketch inspires you?! Some of my favorite cards I've made have been inspired by a sketch challenge. :) Thanks for sharing with us at TSOT.
