Penguin In Summer & Scrap RDV

Happy Thursday, every one! Hope you are having a lovely week so far. =) I am so honored to be invited to guest design for Scrap RDV. This is a blog created by three blog friends where they share their passion of scrapping.

Here is the challenge that I came up with for the guest designing post. 


Ok, I have to admit that I created the sketch after the card was made. You may already knew that I have this weird condition of not being able to follow sketches (not even my own), so I figured that the safest way is to create the sketch afterwards. And of course I can't even draw straight lines let along circles... =) Here is the card:


Don't you love that adorable penguin? I just adore him! =) I found this image called Penguin In Summer 01 at Torico's Etsy shop Birdie Brown.


The penguin is printed on PTI's Stamper's Select White cardstock, cut and embossed using a Standard Circles Large die then colored with Copic markers.


The patterned paper is from the Good Day Sunshine collection by My Mind's Eye and the sentiment is from Papertrey Ink.

My big Thank You to Alexandra for inviting me, I am so excited and honored to guest design for this fabulous blog! =) Please see my guest design post here. Hope you can play along with my sketch and please visit Scrap RDV for fun ideas and projects! =)
