Happy Birthday Taylor!!

It's Taylor's birthday today and a few of her friends decided to get together and throw her a virtual birthday party!

Here is a card I made for Taylor:

I used Rachelle Anne Miller's adorable Birthday Parade for my card. I colored the image with distress ink pads and a watercolor brush.

Since I don't have black soot (what??), my penguins are in unconventional colors. =) You can find this exclusive set of new stamps illustrated by RAM at PaperWorks Co.

I paired the festive image with BasicGrey's sweet Sugar Rush collection. I love those happy bright colors! =)

I also used an older sketch from Taylor for this card. Here is the sketch:

Hope you have a fantastic birthday weekend, Taylor! It's been a treat to work with you. Thanks for letting me be a part of your amazing Sketch Crew, Taylor!! =)

Please visit Taylor's blog and wish her a Happy Birthday!

Here is a list of the ladies that are playing along. Hope you will get a chance to hop with us!
Hope you have fun hopping and hope your weekend is off to a great start! =)

So cute! And yay for not having any penguin color ink as these little guys are fantastic just the way they are!

lauren said...

ok, and now i think ♥ALL♥ penguins should be immediately re-painted in "unconventional" colors...SOOOOOO much more interesting and festive than plain old basic black! :) (this is adorable in every way alice, but the bright colors are truly my favorite part!) ♥
