Happy Monday!!
Today's card is for the clean and simple challenge over at splitcoast. The theme today was "party". I used this cute digital image by Studio 313 called Molly Clownin' Around. She is totally ready to party!! I thought is would be fun to color her with some bold basics and then add some matching buttons. I pierced the borders and added some texture with my birthday cuttlebug folder.

Merry Penguin

Hello! Well, it is a cloudy, cold and windy day here....what a perfect day to make a card! Today I made a card for the Ways To Use It challenge over at We were to fill the "space" on our card with a 3D item. I filled my empty space with three jumbo scallops and added some jumbo glitter brads. I lifted the scallops a bit to make them 3D. I also used a ribbon and jumbo scalloped circle with white gel pen dots to fill in even more empty space! Love this new digital image by Studio 313. It is called Merry Penguin. Isn't he so cute?! I added lots of glitter on this festive holiday card!
