Here is my card for the Saturday Sketch Challenge this week at Stamping 411. You should check out the challenge and play along, too.
This was the perfect inspiration for a birthday card for my DS1. He's 26 this month. I flipped the sketch on it's side for this card. I used the retired stamp set Penguin Paradise. I stamped the penguin on Whisper White card stock and colored him in with ink spots and a blender pen. I then stamped the Happy Birthday (Stampabilities) in black and all the musical notes in Kiwi Kiss both on Kiwi Kiss cardstock. I used my scallop border punch on Basic Black cardstock to make a "rope" which I used to separate my sentiment and the musical notes. Next I punched a scalloped circle from Pacific Point card stock, cut out my little penguin guy and attached him to that which I popped up on dimensionals. I attached the Kiwi Kiss layer to my Pacific Point layer and mounted the whole thing on a card base of Tangerine Tango. I started to put it all on a white card base, but it was lacking. I thought the orange gave it a more tropical feel. I hope you like it! Let me know.
