Get Into Shape at Tuesday Throwdown!

Hello friends!  Hope you are having a great week so far!

Today, I have a new challenge to share with you at
Tuesday Throwdown

We would like to see your shaped card creations this week!
Here's what I came up with for the challenge:
Using the cute sponsor's image from Robyn's Fetish called Paul Penguin in the Mitten, I made a shaped mitten card using my Cricut Explore machine.  I cut two of the mitten shapes out so that my card would open up.  I stamped the snowflakes in white on the background from DRS Designs and the zig zag pattern on the cuff of the mitten was embossed with silver EP and is an image from The Alley Way Stamps.  I sponged some more white ink along the edges of the mitten to soften it up a bit.  I also used a silver dazzles sticker for the border underneath the cuff.

The penguin was colored in with my Copics.  The cuff of that mitten along with parts of the penguin's hat was covered with liquid applique and heated up.  Before I heated up the liquid applique on the cuff of the mitten, I sprinkled some chunky glitter over it which embeds it into the liquid applique.
I also cut out a snowflake with my Cricut Explore and popped it up over the penguin mitten.  I placed a silver enamel dot in the center and popped him up over the front of the mitten card.
All I added then was the silver ribbon at the top.

I wasn't sure if I'd like the blue and purple combo, but I think it turned out OK.
So hop on over to the Tuesday Throwdown to catch the rest of the inspiration from my teammates!
We can't wait to see what you'll come up with!
