Christmas in July Day 4!

Good day to all my bloggy friends!
Happy Saturday!!
I hope that you are all enjoying your weekend!
I still had some time to post my day 4 project for the Christmas In July Challenge over at 
Catch The Bug. Woo-hoo! It was so close!

It is a BINGO Challenge!

(I chose Ribbon, Sparkley & Stripes)

For my sparkly & striped DP I used The Glitter Mat Stack from DCWV.
To color the adorable Little Penguin Winter I used Spectrum Noir Markers and Tombow-Dual Brush Pen Set. To make my shaker, I used Spellbinders Nestabilities Big Scalloped Squares and some colorful sequins to the inside. I stamped the "Happy Holidays" sentiment from the 
"Fun Vertical Greetings" from My Creative Time on a die cut banner. Next, for some extra sparkle 
I adhered a silver bow on the die cut scallop square and sprinkled a few rhinestones. The silver bow was from a Christmas ornament that broke and I fell in love with the bow so I kept was in my Christmas stash.

Here is a closer look at the shaker with the super cute penguin...

For the base of my card, I am using the following sketch from 

Other Supplies Used:

Recollections Basic card stock
Tombow Multi Liguid Mono Glue
Elmer's Craft Bond Tacky Glue
Foam Tape*Sheet Protectors
