A Day for Daisies - Penguin in the Sky

I made this card with Penguin in the Sky for a spread in a card-making magazine published in the UK last July.  Tammy's work was being featured and the DT was asked to create Christmas cards with the images, using a specific color palette for the spread.  Being published in a print magazine was thrilling for all of us whose cards made it "across the pond" in time.  Between the USPS and the British postal system, some cards didn't make the deadline despite being mailed weeks in advance.

I combined Hero Arts Stamp and Die set, Joy with the ADFD penguin and balloon image to create my card.  I simply die cut the word, "joy" and cut it apart, inserting the balloon in the center spot of the word.  I decided to make it look like another small penguin was inside the balloon and then covered the balloon with glitter.  The sentiment is white embossed and clear sequins and baker's twine were used to complete the card.
