Package Packin' Penguin!

Howdy High Hopes Fans!
I know, I know....... It's July not December LOL. But over on the High Hopes Blog, we are celebrating Christmas in July! One of my favourite Christmas images are those with Penguins. My Grandma loved Penguins and every time I see one I think of her and it brings a warm smile to my face!
I used the HH "Package Packin' Penguin" and made a card with a matching gift tag.
I chose papers from the Bazill Basics Paper "Countdown To Christmas" 6x6 paper pad. I love 6x6 pads as the design is smaller and more suited to card making! The sentiment in the corner is called "Have An Ice Day" and I popped it up with some foam squares. A bit of sheer black ribbon and Crystal Stickles on the penguin's hat and bow finished off my card.
The coordinating tag is made from a MFT Stitched Tag die-namics and I layered behind it with matching cardstock. The sentiment is also from High Hopes and is called "Dot Warm Winter Wishes".
To add an icey feel to the sentiment I also added Crystal Stickles to it.
You get an idea of the image and sentiment popped up with foam squares from a side view.
On the inside is the HH sentiment called "Glow of Christmas".
