Caroling Penguins Christmas card

Caroling penguins Christmas card, featuring Scribbles Designs Three B digital stamp, by Paperesse.

These cute caroling penguins (Three B digital stamp) are from Scribbles Designs. The paper they're placed against is a digital paper sheet music freebie from Free Vintage Digital Stamps.

If your crafting pocketbook is suffering post Christmas blues, but you're itching to try something new, consider giving Free Vintage Digital Stamps a look-see. You can get your fix for free! In addition to cute papers, there are also stamps, as seen on this male golfer card I did a while back.

The sentiment was created with Footlight MT Light font. The stitched square dies are more of my inexpensive no-brand Amazon/eBay variety. These metal note embellishments I picked up recently for not even a euro echo perfectly the notes shown in the stamp (is that not a stroke of luck or what?).

Digital stamp – Scribbles Designs Three B 
Color – Caran d'Ache Luminance 6901 pencils
