Penguin Love

When did penguins become such a thing - I'm always being asked to make penguin themed cards!!

This one is for a work colleague to give to her other half on their wedding anniversary...

The penguin image is free clip art I downloaded from the web, simply coloured with pro-markers. I've matted the image on to a grey scalloped die-cut then mounted it 'off the page'. The diamond embossing folder is a very old Sissix folder and I've added the heart with a tiny foam pad to give some depth. The greeting was created in Publisher using Bebas font.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:

Always Fun Challenge #58 - dry embossing
Crafty Cardmakers #211 - no patterned paper
Crafty Catz challenge #416 - anything goes (cute)
