Let it Snow!!!

Hi guys, today I have my last project share for Ally Scraps. My son has been watching The Penguins of Madagascar a lot lately, and I think it definitely inspired me to do this piece.  Hope you like it!:)

Since being on the Samantha Walker design team, I have been using my Silhouette so much more. For this project I used two of Samantha's files. Then main one was the irregular scalloped border from her Scalloped Circle Border File Set. I used the border to cover most of the penguin body and head.  The lettering on the sides of the box and the red border (which is from Samantha's Wacky Borders set) was also cut on the Silhouette.

On the penguin's hat I used Maya Roads Vintage Crochet Trim, that was spritzed with some Maya Mist first. 
Below you can see the that I used Star Trinket Pins and pom poms to embellish the box.

I also used some of Samantha Walker's Swirl Die Cut Paper on the top of box. It was white to start off with, so I used some more Maya Mist to match up the cream color in the rest of the project.

Above the eyes I added pieces of chipboard scrolls that were cut into the "V" shape and then feathers were glued to the ends. You can find the tutorial for this on the Ally Scrap blog HERE.
