Let It Snow - Color Dare #265

Promised myself that I would be making Christmas cards with some of the Challenges, and when I saw the color scheme the first thing that came to my mind were poinsettia's.  Then I thought a Penquin to bring in the black and white and the snowflakes could be the pinks and silver. Randomly stamped on White Daisy cardstock ... the pomegranate and silver snowflakes were stamped after first blotting on a sheet of paper and the Bashful was stamped a second time in the Misti. VersaMark was stamped on my personalized snowflake design paper, adding "clear" embossing powder and heat embossed.  

The focal point was another stamped and die cut snowflake, added the sentiment in black , heat embossed and popped up with 3D foam tape.  The Penguin (already in my stash) just needed to be colored using a red copic pen closest to pomegranate, heat embossed and popped up with 3D foam tape.  Glitter "Clear" Pen was added to the focal point.

That little penguin surrounded by snowflakes is so adorable. Don't usually see pink snowflakes - it's a very pleasant change from the norm.
