New IO Dies Hop~ Day 2

 
Hello Friends!!

Welcome to day 2 of the IO Design Team Blog Hop!  We are showcasing the FABULOUS NEW IO DIES!!  Here is how you can participate and have a chance to win 3 Dies or 3 Die Sets of your choice to be awarded each day: Just leave a comment on each IO dt's blog as well as the IO blog. Good Luck!!

      Now on to my card......

    Aren't these little Penguins just the cutest!!  I love that you can pose them anyway you would like!  I created my peekaboo windows with a 1 1/4" circle punch and dry embossed it and the main white panel with a Sizzix dots embossing folder.  This die comes with an igloo as well but I only used the penguin today.  My sentiment is only part of the Merry Tree DIE106-S  and the rest was saved for another project.  A few rhinestone embellished Small Snowflakes to finish it off. 

     
     Thanks for stopping by and have a fantastic day!!
    Ellen
