Happy Holidays

As I was briefly looking through my Google Reader the other day, I saw this sketch on the Clean & Simple Stamping blog and loved it so I thought I'd play along!  Normally I would have left the card all white and just added the strip of cardstock and the circle as in the sketch, but I decided to add a bit more color and use some patterned paper for the base of the card. 

I used the Penguin Pals stamp set from Taylored Expressions along with the Snow Day Project Pantry kit.  I colored the penguin using Copic markers and added some Stardust Stickles to his Santa hat.  I also used the Scalloped Eyelet Border Die for the edge of the cardstock strip.  As a finished touch, I faux stitched around the edge of card with a brown marker.

Thanks for stopping by today and have a wonderful Sunday!
