SSC #55 - Penguins!

Designed by Sprytebyrd on Sunday, April 18, 2010
Did you know that April 25th is "World Penguin Day?" Well...what are we waiting for? Let's celebrate!  Create a card or project that reminds us of a penguin. You can do this by using an image of a penguin or simply by creating a card or project that is made with the colors black and white. 
Be creative!

We have 2 sponsors for you this week:
Our Very Own, Paula:

Winner's choice of 8 images

I'm entering this cute card into the following challenges this week:
Stamp Something: Something Layered (I've got lots of layered papers)
Little Red Wagon: Dry Embossing (I used Swiss Dots and the dotty paper)
Cupcake Craft Challenges: Childhood Memoris (I LOVED penguins as a child)
One Stop Craft Challenge: Things with wings (Penguins have wings!)
Papertake Weekly: Cutie Pie (Go ahead, tell me penguins aren't CUTE!)
Roses On Paper: Layers
Paper Sundaes: No People
Crazy Challenge: Don't Call Me Flat
Totally Stampalicious: Critter Card
Creative Belli Blog: Any kind of die cut (I used circle & scallop circle Nesties)
If the Shoe Fits...: Inspiration Photo (Black & White)

I had some fun browsing The Daily Dare today, can you tell?  :)

Ok, on to my card!

Some of our Design Team used the color inspiration and some used penguins - either way is fine, whichever you prefer!  I chose to use penguins, although I struggled to find a cute penguin image that wasn't too Christmassy... Thankfully, my Mom found me some stamps while she was out shopping and they worked perfectly!
Here's my Penguin creation for you:
What'd i use?
Stamps: Studio G Clear Stamps
Markers: Copics
Papers: from my scrap pile
Nesties: Circle and Scallop Circle
Embossing: Swiss Dots by Cuttlebug
Ribbon: from my stash
Lots and lots of pop-dots!

14 stamps of approval:
