PPP..Pick up a Penguin

Good morning all. I hope you're enjoying your weekend whatever you're up to. We're having a quiet one after a busy week.

Decided to have a makeover after discovering I'd run out of printer ink and couldn't print the images for a diamond wedding card I was planning to make.

Sharing a card today I made for my sister to give my nephew.

Stamp is from High Hopes and I've stamped it several times on various colours of card and paper pieced it together. Dies and embossing folder are from Spellbinders. Punch is from Martha Stewart. Ribbons and bows are from my stash. Heart are punch waste and have been coated with glossy accents along with the rose.

Inside decorated to match.

Close up of the topper.
