Summer penguin

Can't wait for summer to arrive! So my DT card for the new "Stella Says Sketch" challenge that starts today over at Catch the Bug is quite  summery.

I used an image called Poppi Penguin - popsicle colored with Promarkers. I mounted the DPs onto panels of yellow and stitched with red thread around the edges. I added buttons as embellishments. Stitched dies, ovals and scallop, are all Dienamics ones. Die wise I think they were my best investment ever - I seem to use them over and over again, and I see that stitched dies are very much popluar out there in blogland too.

This card is also for:
Dies R Us Challenge - #46 Use Scallops
Through the Purple Haze - #99 Layers
Crafting for all Seasons - #123 Use Die cuts/Punches

Ha ha ha!!! Such a superfun card!! :D It's so happy and positive with these bright colours and the cool penguin with the icecream!!! Love it so much, and it has a very summer look! Your red stitching looks wonderful and matches perfectly with the papers and the lovely buttons! I also love very much these dies with stitching/piercing, they are really so versatile!
