Cool Penguin

Hi and welcome!  I made this card on the weekend, but I've been so busy at work the last couple of days I haven't had the energy to post it until now.  We are moving premises at work at the end of this month and there is a lot to do!  But if I don't take the time to get this post up now, I'll never do it, so here goes.

This card was made using the current sketch at CAS(E) This Sketch, the colors from MFT's current challenge and Addicted to CAS are looking for our favourite stamp.  This stamp set would have to be one of my favourites and most-used.  I just adore these little penguins!

I started with a white card base and then added an After Midnight layer and another white layer.  The sentiment was embossed with Rouge EP by Zing and angled to suit the sketch.  I framed it on either side with a thin strip of After Midnight cardstock.  The penguin was stamped and colored with Copics, matching the rest of the challenge colors as best I could (Daffodil for the flower and Lemon Chiffon for the drink).  He was then die-cut and popped up onto the card with foam tape.  Finally, I colored the drink and the flower with clear sparkle pen.

Thanks for visiting!
