Birthday Wishes

Happy Saturday! I am coming to you via my new computer. It's a cheap lap top that my hubby bought this week so he could use the more powerful one for other things. But I'm sure it will suit my purposes just fine. The other one had a lot of features that I didn't use and some were just down right annoying so I'm sure I'll be happy with this new one.
Had a little time to craft this afternoon, after I took a long walk outside. Seriously it was 68 degrees in February. Last week at this time the winds were howling and we had wind chills below zero. Indiana weather is so unpredictable.I made a birthday card after my walk.

I used a couple of challenges as inspiration for this card. The Tuesday Morning Sketches was the sketch that I used.

The image is from Bugaboo Stamps called Birthday Penguin. I colored the image with Copics. The sentiment is from Hero Arts and I used my MISTI to stamp the sentiment. The image panel is a die from Gina Marie called Wine Label Tag. I added some Stickles and added pearls for the penguin's buttons and then also pearls on the flourish. The background paper was cut with MFT Pierced Fishtail Flags from chevron (Christmas) paper.The flourish is alos an MFT die-namic.
I am entering these challenges:

Hope you have a fabulous weekend. I'll be back tomorrow with the new CAS challenge from The Outlawz. Thanks for stopping by today!

(I got your card yesterday. Thanks! Too bad you couldn't send me some snow, but if you had, it would have melted... we hit 60 today. Crazy winter!)
Thanks for playing along this week at Tuesday Morning Sketches!!

Congrats on the new computer! It sounds like it will be far easier for you to use for your needs. No need to fuss with the extras! Your card is super sweet. I love all the little pearls, especially down the front of the penguin's "suit."
