Burrrrrrrr ......

A cute winter burrrrrrthday card.  LOL.

I started with a stamp by Bugaboo.  The penguins are just too cute.  I colored them with markers and pencils then I used an embossing pen to wet the top of the snow in the image and topped that with 'snow' embossing powder.   I colored the sky background with blue watercolor to get that faded blue hue.   I topped the penguin hats with a wink of stella for fun.
Next, I cute out of white cs the drippy snow topper with a Sizzix die and used the embossing pen again on the long drips and embossed with 'snow' embossing powder.
For the bottom, I cut a Penny Black fancy edge piece out of white cs and then added blue Nuvo drops on the center of the flowers.
The sentiment was colored with pink marker and edged with Picked Raspberry distressed ink.   All of this was layered onto a dark blue front and then onto a lighter blue cs top fold card base.

Hoping the birthday is chill !

Have a great day and thank you for stopping by.
