Pink Penguin

Hello! My friend Angela and I were talking today about Christmas color combos and Pink came us and that we both had been seeing more pink in Christmas decorations and cards. That made me realize I haven't made a pink winter themed card. I was looking through my mountain of papers looking for something to go with this cute Shirley's 2 Girls digi penguin when I found this paper with the pink and black snowflakes. This was the free digi image from them yesterday for Digi Day on SNR Card Universe. The image was colored with Copic markers and I added glitter for the snow. The snowflake brads and the rhinestones are from Hobby Lobby. The rhinestone was clear but I colored it with a Copic marker to match the colors I used on the hat and scarf. The paper is DCWV and the ribbon is from my stash.

A funny story about this card though; as I was loading this card onto my gallery on SNR, I noticed that the card I made for the last Digi Day was also done with a pink and black color combo. I thought that was funny since it isn't a combo i use a lot but I used it on back to back challenges. Have a great night and thanks for stopping by!

It's true. Pink, black and white do seem to be popular for the holidays by what I see on SCS. You did a great job making this both trendy and winter-y.
