I decided to use primary colors for my little dude card.
I had stamped a few of these cute penguins last year, and only used one
of them, so I colored another one. I thought at the time I'd fussy cut them but
this one needed a frame. Since I stamped the images pretty close together, I had
to cut this out in wonky angles. Turns out, I love how it came out!

I'm linking this up at:

But wait, there's more!
I also made a card for a little miss:

  1. Love that wonky cut on the image, great use of the sketch on the first card, Great colours on the second card, super design Love them both.

  2. AWESOME CARD! I love the shape of the card stock that your image is on it really stands out. Primary colors for this image was a great idea! Thank you for joining us at Simon Says Stamp For the Boy's Challenges.


  3. Both are awesome sistah! Love the wee penguin on the first one!

  4. Primary colours were definitely the way to go for your first card, it looks awesome! And of course little misses can totally handle the secondary colours of the second card. :P These are great!

  5. Sweet girly card, Chris! I love that image, and the purple/green colour scheme. Thanks for playing along at Seize The Birthday :)

  6. VERRRY nice! I was so excited to read the "wait... there's more!" Yes, I am totally down with the wonky shape at the top... should be a sketch (hint-hint... sketch challenge?)... and the girlie card could totally be another variation. Your coloring is impressive, girl. Thumbs up!

  7. Wowza...both cards are lovely. Can you guess which is my favorite?? Thanks for playing along with us at Catch the Bug / Bugaboo for our Saturday themed challenge "say it with flowers". Hope to see you again soon. Good luck.
