Jayne Netley Mayhew 'Penguins' Card

Hi folks. Hope you have enjoyed your weekend. My kiddies are back to school tomorrow, so after the initial morning rush calm will descend upon the Dry residence... hopefully ;o)
I made this card using Joanna Sheen's 'Jayne Netley Mayhew' Penguins rubber stamp set. The papers were from my stash mountain (sorry I can't remember who they are by) I cut away a portion of the front of the card replacing it an EK Success punched strip and some acetate. I stamped the trio of penguins four times and painted them with my Lyra Aqua colours. I then shaped them a little and adhered them to the acetate with dimensional glue gel. I made the frame using a square and small rectangle Nestabilities dies, once cut I ran them through the Cuttlebug in the snowflakes embossing folder and added ice stickles glue to the dots. I popped some pale blue pearlescent paper on top of the white scalloped square and used dimensional glue gel to adhere the embossed frame to the scalloped layer. The baby penguin was stamped and coloured in the same way as the others and then I popped him into the frame. I finished the card off with a white ribbon bow.
Ciao for now!
