P..P..P..Pick Up A Penguin

There is a new challenge blog in town "Less Is More" dedicated souly to the art of making clean and simple cards, which I often admire but never quite get right lol. Anyway this week is challenge #1 and the theme is "Black, White and Pink".

Attention to Detail:

The image "Penguin Love" by Dian Duda for Sugar Nellie has been coloured with my promarkers: cool grey 1-5, black, pumpkin, honeycomb, ginger, blossom, carnation pink and rose pink. I have added a touch of sparkle with my clear sakura stardust pen.

I created the small embossed panel with my snowflakes embossing folder and cuttlebug, the ribbon is from my stash and the sentiment is from a "Lili Of The Valley" Christmas Set. I think this stamp would also double up as a perfect winter Wedding or Anniversary card too.

I am also going to enter this card into this weeks "Allsorts  ~ It Must be Love Love Love" challenge, and "Die Cut Dreams Christmas Club ~ #52 The Gift Of Love" as Mr Penguin is giving Mrs Penguin his heart. I'm also going to enter "Stamps R Us Challenge #13 Animals".
