Pink Penguin

I bought this set last year and am just now getting around to using it for the first time. It is called Perky Penguins and is by The Angel Company. I colored the image with Copic markers and die cut it with a Label 4 die. The card base is Raspberry Fizz and the patterned paper is from DCWV Christmas stack (last year). I matted it onto a piece of Ripe Avocado and punched the bottom with the Fiskars Upper Crest border punch. I wrapped a piece of silver organza ribbon from my stash around the main piece and tied the sentiment with floss. The tag is white chipboard cut from the Sizzix mini tags die and "colored" pink by rubbing a Versamagic Pink Pixie ink pad over it. The sentiment is also by The Angel Company from a set called Tag Tidbits. To finish it off, I added some pink bling to the points of the main image and the points of the border. I just love the way the Label 4 dies and the Fiskars Upper Crest border punch compliment each other.
On the inside of the card, I did my new favorite thing and that is to stamp the same image as the focal point on the front on the inside with Versamark. I just love this look. It is light enough so you can still write over it, but it really makes a statement and livens up the inside of the card.

Thanks so much for stopping by today. Have a blessed day!

Love your pink penguin...good idea to just use versamark on the inside. I leave mine plain and this would easily pop it up a notch! :)
