Baby It's Cold Outside!

Hello all!

I wanted to share the card I created for Kassidy's Inking It Up Crazy's Design Team tryouts.  It had to be a winter-themed card.  This is my final submission:

I started with the sentiment for my card and built it from there.  The "baby it's cold outside" sentiment is from Pink By Design's Christmas Wishes stamp set.  I decided I wanted to make a shivering penguin (because hey baby, it's cold outside!) and snowflakes to support the theme I had chosen. 

I cut the penguin from the "Joys of the Season" cricut cartridge and his scarf is from the "Everyday Paper Dolls" cartridge.  I found the snowflakes on the "Christmas Cards" cartridge as well.  The "shiver" marks are from the "Cuttin' Up" cartridge - I took the "o" shape and trimmed it to make it look more like the poor penguin was freezing.   

The embellishing on the base card is the Cuttlebug Snowflakes folder (love it!).  Paper-wise I used the DCWV Brights Adhesive Mat Stack , the DCWV The Christmas Combo stack, and the ProvoCraft Cricut Blues stack.  And, of course, I used my iRock to add some jeweled embellishments to my card ;)

I am finding that I am becoming more efficinet as I use my Cricut and Design Studio more and more and that the results of my crafting adventures are becoming stronger and stronger (at least to me!).  While I am sending this card to Kassidy, I'm also entering it into the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Me Monday contest for this week since it is all about birds and I am proud of it :) 

Here's hoping that I make the Winter Design Team so I can hone my skill even more!

Thanks for reading!
