Good morning! Welcome to the second installment of my 2014 Holiday Card Series! The minute I received my Mama Elephant new release order in the mail this week, I knew that my very next card would have to feature one of these adorable Arctic Penguins! They're just so darn cute!
I decided to give him a Northern Lights background which I achieved by using Distress Inks in Peacock Feathers, Salty Ocean, Dusty Concord, and Seedless Preserves. But if you google the Aurora Borealis, there are so many color options to choose from! I'm definitely going to keep playing and making more of these backgrounds for my new little friends. :)

I'll also be linking this up to the current Mama Elephant and Me Challenge: Anything Goes. There's still a few days left to play along if you haven't already!
