Monday's Lunch Time Sketch #3

You know when you have an idea in mind for a card and you can't make it work? I hate that! I was determined to use my favorite little penguin from SU's Polar Pal's set for this challenge. But he proved to be a little big for my circles and intended sketch. And for some unknown reason, I thought that changing my card size from the usual 4.25"x5.5" to 5.5"square would make it work better. Why? I wasn't gaining more room horizontally...? Who knows what I am thinking sometimes! But I was using that penguin and nothing else would work!

Here is what I ended up with

Stamps: Polar Pals, Print, Mini Mates
Paper: Pixie Pink, Only Orange, Basic Black, White retired SU! DSP.
Ink: Pixie Pink, Black, Only Orange
Other: Black Gingham Ribbon; Dazzling Diamonds; Jumbo Heart Eyelets

Here is the original sketch provided by Mary Jo. Go on over to her blog and check out the other great cards that were made for this sketch.

Kerry: you crack me up as I was having the same issues as you, hence my 2 cards instead of just one. You did a great job and I think the penguins are adorable for this card!

Cute card! but i must say that with my aging eyes, I find your site (color choices) very difficult to read. Since you put so much work into your site, it would be a shame if others were passing it by because of the difficulty in being able to read it.
