Chillin' Peachy Keen Challenge Entry


Peachy Keen Stamp Blog is having a sketch challenge. 
The challenge is to create a card or layout based on the sketch to the left.

For my CHILLIN' version I made a 5x5 card usng one of my favorite cartridges, Creat a Critter.
I used Bazzill paper for the  base, Echo Paper 's Snow from the Winter Time collection, scraps from my scrap box and a bit of vellum.

How I did it...
Cut circle frame and frame shadow at 3.25" from Reminisce CM cartridge on p. 68
I used vellum for the shadow frame and embossed it to give it an ice look.
The Penguin and all layers are cut at 2.25" from Create a Critter. 
I used the Peachy Keen Winter Faces stamp set for his sweet face. Added stickles to his scarf & glossy accents for the eyes and mouth.
Used my Martha Stewart drippy goo border punch for my icicle border.
Attached the penguin and frame with pop dots.
Sentiment is from Scrappy Moms Charmed Life stamp set. 
I originally cut the penguin at 2" before I determined he was too small, so I added him on the inside of the card.

You can also find it in the It's Cold outside Challenge.
