Happy Feet

Who could resist these two?  Our Sketch with a Twist challenge this week is to make a Winter card.  
My husband came by as I was making my base panel.  The card was covered in post it notes and I was cutting post-its to make the small uninked rectangles.  He asked if I was writing a thank you to the post-it note inventor.  Honestly!

The base was a lot of fun, despite my husband's derogatory comments.  The snowflakes are from MFP's Calendar set.  I stamped them in Versamark and heat embossed them with glitter embossing powder so it's very shimmery in real life.  It's too bad it didn't photograph well.  I then inked everything in Brocade Blue.  I so miss that colour.  I wish I'd bought more when it was retired.  I then stamped the sentiment with MFP's Brrr set.  The penguins are recycled from a Christmas tag from last year.  

Challenges this Card Meets:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Snow
Craft Your Passion - Baby, It's Cold Outside
Come and Get It - Winter
Pile It On - Recycle/Upcycle (The penguins came from a tag.)
