Hi there!  Today’s post is just a really quick one before the current challenge at The Paper Players ends.  They wanted to see clean and simple styled cards that incorporated coloring.  I also wanted to make something for the current Cards in Envy challenge to use a thought or speech balloon on a card.

I’ve put together a card from bits and pieces left over from other projects.  The penguin was already stamped; all I did with him for this card was color him and cut him out.  I found a scrap on my desk that was just the right size for the speech bubble.  I painted some shimmery white paint on another scrap of cardstock that I’d cut for the snowbank/ice for the penguin to stand on.  And the card base was a half sheet of cardstock left over from another card.  So yay for using up stuff!


Thanks for stopping by today!  Comments are always welcome and appreciated!

Stamps: Critters in the Snow, Sophie’s Sentiments, A Birdie Told Me (Lawn Fawn)
Cardstock: Cool Caribbean (Stampin’ Up); Pure Luxury White (Gina K. Designs)
