It's Saturday and that meanswe have a new challenge over at Catch the Bug. This week we're having a PHOTO challenge.

I was inspired by the yellow and green colors. I also chose a creature with wings - meet "Poppi Penguin" - you can find him in the Bugaboo store here.

I colored him with Promarkers, fussy cut him and added glossy accent to the lemonade details and sunglasses. The sentiment was sent to me by Monika - thank you so much! I just added some WoS on it for a little sparkle.

This card is also for:
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper - Anything Goes with Patterned Paper
Aud Sentiments Challenge - #156 Anything Goes + A Sentiment
I love Promarkers - #309 Anything Goes

    Donna Ellis said...

    Oh So CUTE! I just learned another fabulous thing from you... your little penguie is darling, and you have not shaded the black parts. I always thought they should be shaded. But yours looks amazing in solid black. Now I'm less afraid of working with the images requiring large black areas. THANK YOU! I always enjoy your designs. So pretty! And this one is perfect while you get ready for holiday! hugs, de
