You can link up your creation and find all the challenge details HERE.
I just had to use the adorable Warm Fuzzies set pictured below to create my Animal Kingdom card. I find the images in this set so cute especially the little penguin I'm featuring on my card today. I started by folding a 9" x 4 1/2" piece of white cardstock in half to create a 4 1/2" x 4 1/2" card base. Once my card base was folded I cut a piece of blue cardstock slightly smaller then my card base, randomly stamped the entire piece of cardstock with the cute little penguin, rounded the corners, and added some stitching around the outside edge. I heat embossed the larger snowflake that is included in the set onto some black cardstock with some bright white embossing powder and cut it in to a little banner. I attached the little banner with a stapler to the top left of my stitched blue cardstock and then attached the entire piece to my card front.
For the main focal point of my card I die cut some watercolor cardstock with a mini scalloped circle die, stamped my images, and watercolred them with some watercolor pencils and glimmer mist. I stamped the floating ice chunk first then masked it off and stamped the penguin in the center of it. I colored the floating ice and penguin with some watercolor pencils and then went back over the ice with some pearl glimmer mist to give the ice a shimmery appearance. After my watercoloring had time to dry I stamped the "You're so cool" sentiment next to the penguin and attached the whole piece to the middle of my card.
I hope you enjoyed my fun polka dotted Thank you card today! Don't forget to check out the amazing projects the rest of the Design Team has created over at the blog HERE. Thanks for visiting!
