Christmas Under the Sea

Last week Heather, at Lacy Sunshine, had offered a choice of 2 images for her 'Loyalty Program' digi.  I chose 'Sheldon C. Turtle', such a cute Christmas image!

I used a snow pen on the furry parts of his hat that is supposed to puff up when heated, but it didn't work.  So, rather than throw the image away and start over, I used Stampendous Shabby White Embossing Enamel over it and now the white parts of his hat are all sparkly.  I've had this paper stack for ages and decided it would be perfect for this image. 
Thank you, Heather, for this cute image.
