Happy Holidays for Merry Monday #95 & DS137

The Merry Monday Challenge this week is to use an animal on your Christmas card and the Deconstructed Sketch #137 has lots of layers, which I like. :)
 
DS137 by the Deconstructed Sketch
The white photographed a little wonky and I took several photos trying to get it right, but this is the best I could do.  I paper-pieced the cute penguin from Cottage Cutz Jolly Penguin die (I love it!). I added a little gray shading around the white parts.  He is mounted with foam dimensionals on circles cut with MFT Circle Stax 1 and 2.  The sentiment is from a retired SU set called Riveting, stamped in SU Garden Green ink. I used 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" circle punches for the sentiment pieces.  I hand-cut the small banners.  All the DSP is from Pebbles Welcome Christmas 6x6 pad. The mats are SU Basic Black and the card base is MFT Smooth White CS.
 
Thanks for stopping by.
Happy Stamping,
JoAnn
