Here's a look at my hubby's bird-day (oops, I mean, "birth-day"!) card for this year! I used two stamps from Whimsy - the Penguin Prezzie for the main image, and the hat and sentiment from "Happy Bird-day" set. I only had to stamp the hat and fussy cut around it, then glue it on. The balloon was hand drawn, once I stamped the sentiment, then fussy cut as well. The gold stickers have sparkle (photo didn't pick that up). I doodled around the edges for another detail. Beautiful paper is printed off my own computer from some of Whimsy's gorgeous patterned paper. I really don't need to buy paper from anywhere else now, they have such a huge variety in the catalogue. And it is SO much easier to have these ready to print rather than to have stacks of paper that I have to store and leaf through by hand.
I coloured the image with the following Copics:
Penguin Blacks: C0, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, blender 0
Beak and feet: Yr21, 23, 27
Penguin Whites: E40, B60, V91, E70, 71, R30 for blush
Turquoise: BG11, 32, 34, 72, 75, 91, 93
Greens: YG01, 03, 05, 25, 67
Pinks: RV02, 05, 17, 19
I've entered into the colour challenge for this week, CC659
Thanks so much for looking!

Love everything about this cute card. Love the doodling and cannot believe you hand drew that balloon. The trailing string and gold flourish are wonderful as is your coloring with the challenge colors. Great card.
