Penguin Greetings ~ CCMC328 & RS139

Penguins are my very favorite animal in the world and I've been wanting to paper piece this little guy for a long time.  For this card I used the color combo from Create With Connie and Mary 328 and the sketch from Retro Sketches 139.  I just love this sketch! Most people must have because there are a lot of entries there this week!  I had hoped to play along and I'm making my submission just under the wire!  

I thought the combo at CCM this week was perfect for my penguin.  I used some fun paper from the Trim The Tree paper stack.  I also incorporated some of the All Is Calm DSP.  

Here's a list of my supplies....
Stamps: Zoo Review, Letterpress Winter
Ink: Memento black, Smokey Slate, Cherry Cobbler Blendabilites
Paper: Cherry Cobbler, Smokey Slate, Lost Lagoon, White, All Is Calm & Trim The Tree DSP
Accessories: Adorning Accents die & EF, Northern Flurry EF, Silver 1/4" ribbon, rhinestones

Thanks for taking a peek!
