Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge #387


Welcome to another week on the Simon Says Stamp Challenge !! Thank you for joining us for the  "clean and Simple" Challenge and we hope you will all join us again this week too :-)

This week the challenge is...

 Gift It (Gift Card or Gift)

 We are using Clearly Besotted products this week. You don't have to use them to join in but if you have some, we love to see them used :-)

For my project, I used Penguin Planner set and created a gift card/money holder. This cute set is inexpensive and comes with many cute images of penguin. It is more than just a planner set to me. I had made a card with it previously (see here).
I utilized the stitched dies and created a pocket. By using watercolor paper, I was able to color these adorable penguins with Spectrum Aqua Markers.

I also stamped 3 peeking penguins to anchor the pocket. Creating a pocket is easy to do. Penguin Planner set really is more than just a planner set.

I LOVE IT! Those teeny penguins peeking from behind the panel had me laughing out loud. What a terrific and darling way to present a gift card.
