Cheery Lynn Designs Tangled Tinsel

The challenge this week at Cheery Lynn Designs is to use non-traditional Christmas colors.  I think this card fits that bill.  I began with an aqua card base 5 x 7 inches.  My designer paper came from a 6x6 inch pack so I trimmed the top row of penguins off; placed them at the top and the rest of the paper at the bottom.  That left me a gap of about an inch to fill in.  

To create the border piece, I began with a 1 inch pink strip and added a 3/4 inch aqua strip.  Using the largest die from the new Madrid Flourishes Rectangle Boutique Stacker Frame and a pink piece of card stock 1/2 inches wide, I cut a border piece.  You can see in the photo above, that I just taped my card stock piece to the die and then ran it through my machine.  Using spray adhesive, I attached it to the aqua piece then trimmed the ends to size and added it to my card base.  

Using the largest die from the fabulous new Mirror Mirror Doily, I die cut it from pink card stock.  Using the smallest die, I cut it from aqua card stock and then used the plain oval from the set to trim out the smaller frame.   I layered them and then popped it up on my card base, popping up my cute little penguin as well.

 set and aqua card stock, I started my sentiment panel.  I trimmed a pink piece of card stock as a backer, then stamped my sentiment and trimmed it to fit.
