Brrr-ing on the holidays

Welcome to Sherrie Scraps with Passion
Hello Everyone!
I hope you are having a good week!
I noticed a few Christmas in July challenges going on and thought I would join in. Not to mention, what a great way to get started on some Christmas cards, right?? Maybe for once, I can actually have some done ahead of schedule, lol! I have some new dies and stamps from Craftin Desert Diva that I used on this fun Christmas card~
Hope you like it:
After creating the base, I cut a panel for the background and water colored it with SU certainly celery. I stamped the inside sentiment with Craftin Desert Diva's~Chill Out stamp set. I then framed it with Craftin Desert Diva's~Crazy Stitched Frames. I turned this into a fun little shaker card and filled it with yummy Snow Palace sequins.
The adorable penguins and bulb are stamped with the same set, Chill Out and colored with copics. I added a little Wink of Stella for some shimmer. The bulbs are hanging with some twine from my stash and the faces are stamped with Peachy Keen Stamps~new Bucket List Emojis Face Asst.
I also created a cute little treat bag to match. The glassine bag is from Trendy Twine and is perfect size to hold some yummy candy or even a gift card :) The sweet penguin is adhered to an oval from the Banner Dies. I added a small strip of washi tape and then a little twine bow to
finish it up.
