Purple winter wishes penguin card

I had so much fun making this Christmas card in my favorite color purple.
I was really looking forward to using my new die that gives you that beautiful stitched scallop circle cut into your card front.  After embossing the front I rubbed some very light blue ink over the design to show it a little better.  I used some of my old Christmas paper scraps for the purple striped background in the circle and also used a die to cut a stitched snowy hill to perch the adorable penguin on.  I heat embossed the winter wishes sentiment in white and added a couple of pink sequins and a sparkly bottle bead to the center of each.  I added some purple stars that I die cut with my banner die for a different project and I kept the innie stars for later use.  They worked out well for this card, glad I kept them 😊
For the inside I used a digital sentiment and added a glowing frame around the edges of the mat.   After printing I used a stitched die to cut the mat out.  I stamped a star in purple to go along with the stars on the front that I added and in the embossing.
