Winter Wishes

Hello and Happy Tuesday. So, initially I set out to participate in the MyGrafico challenge: embossing. Then I moved on and found another challenge, and another. So I put my idea's down on paper:

First, I love this little penguin. Second, you can't see all the glittery goodness or glaze that looks so pretty. Anyway, in real life, this card turned out pretty darn cute and is now "Card #6" (as in I have now completed 6 Christmas cards!).

So, I double check the MyGrafico site for the deadline and realized one little thing...I FORGOT TO EMBOSS!! So I take out my Cuttlebug and added a few snowflakes in each corner! As I do this, I realize the entire card would have looked great embossed...instead of the mess I made in the corners. But it's too late now...and whoever this card goes to, they probably won't even realize it was an afterthought! **Details: Magnolia DP, sewing, MyGrafico image colored with Copics, glaze, glitter glue, Stampin' Up Sentiment Short & Sweet.

This meets the following challenges:

Oh Lola, you could never mess up a card, I love stopping by to see what you have created and I am never disappointed, you are so very creative. (I hope you start scrapbooking for Bean)
