I wanted to honor the queen for this week Gabby, gabalot, and chose this cute penguin card http://www.splitcoaststampers.com/ga...by=mf&way=desc. It was perfect for today's Free For All Challenge: Black and White and Read All Over where we were to use newsprint with extra points for a b/w & red color scheme! Yay, I score! This even fits into yesterdays Ways to Use It Challenge For the Birds! I started by making my back panel of black stamped with Whisper White and embossed in white. I added some Versamark pen to the snowflake centers then used heat and stick powder to adhere some Dazzling Diamonds. I did the same to the smaller snow on the newsprint and on the edge of the torn snow: there's much more shimmer IRL! I made my owl punch penguin using this tutorial: http://juliedavison.blogspot.com/201...guin-card.html. I also embossed my sentiment and added a bit of glitter to it too.

What a cute card, Gail! I love penguins and almost made a card with them for today's F4A. I had forgotten about this CAS card I made. You improved upon it and it looks terrific. Thank you for coming to my "party!" Hee! :)
