Jamie's Penguin and Gems

Please scroll down for our Beary Sweet Challenge #15 Winners!

Just one week until the big day and hopefully you have already sent out your Christmas cards (ok, I admit it, I just picked up pictures for my cards today and so I will be dutifully addressing them this weekend so I can get them mailed by Monday!). But in case you are still looking for card ideas, I am so excited to share you with my card today.

I made my first Penny the Penguin and I think she turned out absolutely adorable!!!! I added a Santa Hat from JoLee's boutique and a little bow made out of Martha Stewart Candy Cane Baker's Twine.

For my card I used the brand new Wintertime collection from Echo Park. I am in love with these papers! They are perfect for Christmas or just for any wintertime pictures. I especially love the gray, as it's a non-traditional Christmas color but not too overwhelming. I stitched around the edges and added some Diamond Stickles for a little snowflake shimmer. I added a larger punched snowflake and used some red gems to decorate it.

Here is a peek at the inside of my card, I used a Martha Stewart Around the Edge punch to do snowflakes around my entire square and then saved some of the snowflakes and put them on the front with more red gems.

This is a great challenge to enter, just create a new project and include gems or pearls and link it to our challenge by midnight on Dec. 31st EST (you'll be up that night anyway, ringing in the New Year!) and you just might win a Beary Scrap voucher!

Jamie, I love it! It's so adorable! I know when I have time to get back to scrapbooking, your ideas will creep into a layout (or 3). I almost can't wait for Christmas to be over so I have time to play with all the great ideas you ladies are giving me! I'm even thinking ornaments for next year already.
