Birthday Parade

I am sharing a card that I made for this week's Sunday Sketch over at the PWCO blog. Here is the sketch that I based my card on:


Here is my card:


I adore these cute penguins! I love the festive details in this image. It's called Birthday Parade and is illustrated by Rachelle Anne Miller.


After coloring it, I cut the image out using a Petite Ovals Small die then matted with a piece of patterned paper cut using a Petite Ovals Large die. I love that the dies coordinate and that makes matting image so easy!


The patterned paper is from the Sugar Rush collection by BasicGrey.

That's all for today. Hope your day is fabulous!



Thanks for stopping by!
