"Ugly Sweater Contest" at Stampendous Stamps

Good Morning Stampers.  I am participating in the
 Stampendous Stamps Ugly Sweater Holiday Challenge.
This is my fifth project.
  We used the Cool Penguin stamp and die set to create our projects.

Stampendous will be giving away 3 Cool penguin sets
 randomly drawn from the comments on all posts during the challenge
  which runs from November 25th to December 8th. 
Then between December 9 - 11,
 you will have the opportunity to vote on your favorite designer.
 So check out the Stampendous Blog between Nov 25th and December 8th
 and leave a  comment on their blog and the designer's blogs.

I made a gift bag, so pretty in pink.
I cut out a tree shape from card stock and
trimmed the edges with green stickles
I colored up the sweater and hat and used
clear embossing powder on them both.
Using the same green stickles I used on the edge
of the bag, I outlined the neck, cuffs, waist band, and
brim of hat.
I also dotted the sweater and hat with the stickles.
Then mounted this sweet girl onto the middle
of the tree with pop dots. The sentiment is
from the stamp and die set also.

Added plastic snowflakes that I had inked with pink
Oxide ink and glittered.  The sentiment was stamped
on a pink card stock oval that I ran trough a
snowflake embossing folder.

Thanks for stopping by today. Have a great day.  Until later...
