Cool Day

Happy Hump Day! Since I have a four day work week I have two days down and two to go. Definitely a busy week with all kinds of things just cropping up to block getting real work done. Just a regular work week, right? Business as usual. But I made a fun card tonight and I really like the way it turned out.


I used the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches for this week. And the sentiment and image are from From the Heart Stamps called Wind Blown Penguin. I cut the sentiment with a brand new (and I think it just might be a new favorite) cross stitched rectangle from Gina Marie. The designer paper is from leftovers from a Simon Says Stamp kit. Each of the layers is backed with black card stock. I used the sentiment as the focal point and inked it with Peacock Feather distress ink. The little penguin is colored with Copics and the balloons are covered with Wink of Stella. I finished the card off with some Zva pearl creations.



I am entering these challenges:
Hope you like my card tonight. I love the sparkle and the cross-stitched rectangle die/ Looking forward to the weekend and I hope the rest of your week is awesome!
