Hi everyone! Today I have a fun birthday card to share with you! This little penguin from "Polar Pals" has always been one of my fave Stampin Up images....isn't he adorable? I used paper-piecing on the sun and palm tree (by stamping on designer paper, cutting out and adhering over the stamped cardstock pieces). The sand was created by tearing and sponging; the water was sponged over a piece of scratch paper; the clouds were sponged over a punched scalloped circle.
I will be submitting this for the following challenges:
Splitcoast Color Challenge CC380: Tangerine, Chocolate, and Artichoke;
