So I finally do a Papertrey Ink Make It Monday, and then I realize that I probably did it slightly wrong. I watched the video on Monday but didn't make the card until Thursday or Friday. I was already thinking of doing this card when I saw the video so I got really excited when I saw it! So, I made the background with the sentiment stamps, but I didn't layer least not on purpose. There was a bit of overlap here and there but I like how it turned out. I used a Spellbinders Nestibilities die to cut the bottom edge of the strip I stamped.

Stamp: PTI Mazel Tov

Paper: PTI rustic white (base), DCWV shimmer stack (blue layer & focal), Staples 110 lb card stock (white layer)

Ink: ColorBox (not sure what color but it's from one of those strips with lots of colors), Martha Stewart silver

Other: silver cord (stash), Stampendous clear embossing powder

Once again, I didn't get around to doing the Papertrey Ink Make It Monday (maybe next week?). I am super excited about the project I did tonight though. Not only is this my first attempt at an ornament. It's the first time I saw something in the store, looked at it and thought, " I know exactly what I could do with this" and then came home and did it. I also really like it because there was a bit of beading involved. I haven't beaded since last year, around this time (when I learned how to bead), so I'm pretty pleased with what I accomplished. This little penguin is going to a friend, and I hope they really enjoy it. Thanks for stopping by!

From my happy place to yours,
