Penguin Love

I'm back - tanned and relaxed after a wonderful holiday in Mexico and ready to play in the craft room!

Today's card is an order from a work friend, who requested an anniversary card for her partner with a penguin theme. I love penguins myself, and found the ideal digi by Blackberry Jelly which I adapted, re-sized and fussy cut to make this cute card. The heart balloon and bow is from a set of balloon dies by Elizabeth Craft Design. I've coloured them with pro-markers and mounted them on foam pads. The greeting was created on my computer and I used Bebas font.

I love the versatility of digis rather than rubber stamps. The biggest advantage is being able to manipulate the images, and make them as big or as small as you require. Also, I have two left hands when it comes to rubber stamping - I can never get the pressure right and often have bits missing or lighter parts on the image. Using a digi, the image is always bold and clear.

I've entered this card into the following challenges:

As You Like It Challenge - rubber or digi (see above!)
Time Out Challenges - clean and simple 
The Corrosive Challenge Blog - our animal friends
Bastelmuehle Blogspot - clean and simple
