One Cool Dude

I'm offically on the Valentine day band wagon.  I didn't want to admit it was around the corner because that means more candy in my house, but it's here. I  decided to fill my apothecary jars with conversation hearts and red heart gummies because they are cheap decorating items and  I we can eat them Valentine's day.  I have a major sweet tooth but I'm hoping to have some willpower and stay away.  I keep telling myself if I eat one there goes the cute Valentine decor.
I decided to start making some cards for the little Valentine's in my house.  The ones that are already asking to eat my Valentine decor.  Haha they must take after their mommy.  My little guy is one cool dude in my book so I made him this sweet card.  I know boys don't like bling but the snowflakes needed a little somethin' somethin'.  I hope he likes it!
It's hard to see it in this picture but the background paper has snowflakes on it.

I added a lot of dimension to the penguin.  I stacked two layers of pop dots.

Is he cute or what?

I also added lots of Stickles to the igloo door frame.  I wanted it to look like it was frosty.  I also added some glossy accents to the igloo outlines. 

Comments make me smile :-)!
