Penguin Friends

It's time for a new challenge over at the Sunday Stamps blog and this week we have a fun sketch from Amy! I love this sketch because it screams simple and between work and other stuff I have going on simple is exactly what I need!

I decided to use this new penguin set from SU called . I adore penguins, they're my number 2 favorite animal, so I could not resist this set. Believe it or not I talk to a lot of folks who think we have penguins here in Alaska, along with our igloos and snow 365/24/7. Oh how I wish!! Between moose and penguins I don't think my husband would ever be able to get me inside and my camera put away LOL 

I stamped the penguins and their scarves and then I used a retired SU embossing folder to create a look of falling snow. I then mounted the image panel on some Shaded Spruce and pulled out a Night of Navy card stock. I didn't like how plain the NON base looked so I used the Buffalo Check background stamp to create a little more action on the card base. It's not too overwhelming but at the same time gives a nice contrast. I love how it looks like the penguin on the left is hurrying over to give the one on the right a big hug!

Make sure you head on over to the Sunday Stamps blog to see what the rest of the DT created and then play along with us, we'd love to see how you interpret this sketch!
