Happy New Year Penguins


Love! Love! Love the penguins! It's no wonder they look happy, they're toasting in the New Year (The Pile It On challenge #31 is to welcome 2010 and the Cute Thursday Challenge #94 is to feature something new) with a Cosmo in a sugar coated glass. The sugar coating is Glitzy Glitter and it looks so yummy on cards. It's for the Cat's Pajama's challenge to use glitter. Coincidentally the Creative Belli Bling Challenge #82 is also to use glitter or rhinestones. I'm not a big fan of the Cosmo but I am a big fan of pink. The drink is a Cosmo because the Crafty Creations challenge is to use black and white with a splash of color and I love the way pink looks with black and white. This is one of my favorite go to layouts and it's also the layout for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge #5190oooo-9o. It's simple, can be done quickly, looks great and you can spice it up with some simple embellishments like the tag (made with a Martha Stewart punch) and the Taylor's Tiny Twinkle stuck on the center of the bow made from floss. You will probably have to click on the picture to enlarge it in order to see it. The black MFT ribbon is gorgeous in person but it doesn't photograph well.
Here's the rest of the deets: the dp is DCWV Glitter Stack and the edge of the white cs is sponged with Ranger Distress Ink Tattered Rose.
Thanks for visiting, I hope you'll return and that you'll click on the pink ribbon before you go.
