Quirky Penguin


Hi everyone. Today I had some fun with Doodle Pantry's Quirky Penguin.  Isn't he the cutest!  I used one of the pre-colored images from the set.  Of course, I couldn't resist adding a Santa Hat from the Santa Accessories set.  After copying and pasting the images and sentiment into a Word document, I filled in the dotted background digitally.  After printing, the hat was colored with Copics, and white Fun Flock was added to the trim.  

I fancied up the design with dies and punches .  The ornament was punched with a MS punch and embellished with dazzling diamonds and some bling.  The fancy edge on the black background layer was cut with a lattice rectangle die by Spellbinders.  

I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
Forever Friends Challenge -- Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great week!
