Lawn Fawn: Penguin Birthday Card

Lawn Fawn Penguin Birthday Card by Maria Byrd - CraftsyByrd - updated082017

This is a last minute Penguin Birthday Card I've made especially for Lawn Fawn's First Challenge on their new Lawn Fawnatics blog.  As I was looking through challenge blogs on this rainy Sunday morning, I came across the post with only 2 hours to make a card.  Lawn Fawn is special to me because it's my first exposure to cardmaking a year ago.  So, I just have to be a part of it!  I used my very first stamp set which is Lawn Fawn's Toboggan Together.

Two hours for me isn't much time since I'm still slow in coming up with card design or figuring out the layout.  I'm not sure if I can use other brands of patterned cardstock in the challenge, so I ended up roughly water coloring Neenah 80 lb cardstock remnants with Inktense Pencils.  Color strips are then trimmed with Stitched Scalloped Borders and outlined with Sakura Gelly Roll Pens for sparkle.  The bows and penguins' feet and nose are enhanced with Glossy Accent to add a slight dimension.

The components are arranged on a cardstock trimmed with Large Stitched Rectangle die and 'Happy Birthday To You' sentiment from Scripty Sayings set is embossed in gold.  With less than 14 minutes to spare, I'm able to submit the card before the challenge closed.  Whew!  😁

I would like to enter my Penguin Birthday Card to the following challenges:
