Penguin Party

Today's card is an order from a friend at work who wanted something penguin themed - I do seem to make a lot of penguin cards!!

I've used this very sweet digi image from 2 Cute Ink - coloured with pro-markers and mounted on scalloped die-cut circles.

I've used a large square 8x8 white base so this card will really stand out! The backing papers are from my stash and I created the greeting using Candy Round font. Finally, I've added some coloured pearls to mimic the polka dots in the backing paper.

I'm entering this card into the challenges at:
