The Card Concept #166-Fresh New Year!

Hello my stampy friends!

Hope all of you are doing well!

I am ready for 2022 to get started! 

 It has to be better than last year! 

We have a new challenge starting today here at


Fresh New Year!

I adore pink, black and gold together!!!
That is what Inspired my Clean & Simple Style card.

~Clean lines
~Lots of Layers
~Designer papers, embossing
~Clean & Fresh looking
~Some colored images
~White space

 Here is my card:

I think this little penguin is so cute! He was made with the stamp set Penguin Palace (Stampin Up)
and the matching Penguin punch. I just love him!
I needed to make some thank you cards and I thought he would be perfect for what I needed!

I made his little beak with gold glitter paper and his feet with orange glitter paper to give him some pizazz!

I hope I have inspired you to join our challenge!
I love seeing all of your beautiful creations!
