Craft Us Crazy Challenge

Happy Thursday all!  Today I'm a Guest Designer over at the Craft Us Crazy Challenge.  Their challenge runs from today, February 17 through Wednesday, March 2.  Be sure to stop by their blog to get all the details and to see the fantastic projects by their Design Team.


Since their challenge is a "Winter" theme, I decided to use Penguin's Little Letter for my card today.  I colored my image with colored pencils and gamsol.  I used Glamour Dust on his hat and the snow.  I used my Martha Stewart snowflake punch for my border and added Glamour Dust and tiny pearls to the little snowflakes.  A little purple bow and some pearls in the corners and my card was finished.  I hope you find time to play along in the Craft Us Crazy Challenge.  Penguin's Little Letter is by Meljen's Designs and you can find all the Meljen's Designs images at Whimsy Stamps
