My DT card for our new challenge over at Brown Sugar

Here are the details for my card

I started off with a Craftwork Cards card blank and scored it in half on the top layer and folded back 
and then decorated with some patterned papers from my stash

The image, which I have coloured with Copics is called Poppi Penguin and is available in
 Bugaboo Stamps store HERE
The circle sentiment which is a clear rubber stamp from Lili of the valley
I used my Spellbinders Octagon and scalloped octagons to mat and layer the image and circle and scalloped circle dies to mat and layer the sentiment
I have also added a die cut, using a Marianne Design die, corners using Spellinders gold imperial corners one, some bakers twine and Craftwork Cards card candi

  12. Oh, dear girl, I can send you lots of nice warm and humid weather from the East Coast of the U.S., it is unfortunately rather sticky. Your card made me chuckle as soon as I viewed it. Loving the happy vibe, the adorable penguin, and the colors are summery but with a cool feel! You put a lot of work into the layers, the embellishments, and it came together wonderfully!
