Fishy Present

I have EXCITING news!!  A little while ago I was contacted by the coordinator from Di's Digi Designs and asked if I would join their design team?  Di's images are so, so, sooooo adorable, I had to say "YES!"  

So, today is my first challenge as part of the design team!  Thanks Aud and Di for asking me!  Our theme this challenge is: Christmas In July. The sponsor for this challenge is Craftin' Desert Divas and the winner will receive 2 digi images of choice.
 And here is my super cute card:
 I mean, could those penguins be any cuter??  And look at the little present; if I had to guess, I think it might be . . . . a fish??  So cute!  Sorry for the darkness of the picture; the penguin with the scarf, his hat is actually green as are the dark parts on the present though they show up as black.  I used glitter paper to die cut an icicle border than I placed below the ribbon and I added clear Wink of Stella to the pom-poms on the hats and the snow along the ground.  You can just see a bit of sparkle in the next photo:
I hope you will get a chance to play along with us as there are fabulous prizes to be won!  Plus, it's time to get working on those Christmas cards if you haven't started already!

Supplies:
Stamps: Di's Digi Stamps "Penguins Fishy Friend B&W" digi; Verve "Ornamental Christmas" sentiment
