Sweet Sunday Penguins

It's time for this week's Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge, SSSC107.

I decided to add to my Project Christmas 2011 cards...this is card #8. I used the fun Penguin Pals set from Taylored Expressions and paired it with the shimmery snowflake paper from Doodlebug's Winter Time collection.

The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured with copics. I added pink and blue sparkle with my Spica glitter pens then puffed up some liquid applique for his hat. I cut the blue scallop with my small scalloped border die and tied some cheery green polka dot ribbon. You may notice my card is less embellished than my other cards. Well that's because I fought with those little squares to get them just the right size, and when I was done fighting I didn't have the energy left to do too much embellishing. Although, the bright side is this card is quite flat for mailing.  :-)

I hope you'll play along with this week's sketch and link your creation on Karen's blog. Now it's time to hop around for more inspiration from the Sweet Sunday girls.

Fighting over this card is just "wrong, wrong wrong"! It's super cute, bright and cheery. It's also a perfect Christmas card for today as we woke up to a winter wonderland!

Your card is so adorable. I love the colors. They make what might be a gloomy day (if you're tired of snow) and make it cheerful. Hugs, dj1952
