It's [NOT] a Penguin Mom Card (#13/52) {03.31.2017}

Okay ... This is an inside joke about a penguin. A few years ago, while we were vacationing in Hawaii with my parents, my friends and I saw something in a tree across the golf course. We were trying to figure out what it was, and my Mom said, "It's not a penguin." We don't know why she ever came up with that, since ya know, penguins aren't indigenous to Hawaii or anything! So, I like to highlight penguins for my Mom as much as I can. Here is a card with a penguin on it! I used supplies from the April card kit from Simon Says Stamp.

I stamped out the giraffe, penguin, hearts, and sentiment from the stamp set in the card kit. I colored the images and sentiment with Prismacolor pencils. I die cut the card panel using Lawn Fawn's Stitched Rectangles die. I also die cut some patterned paper from the card kit, that is Lawn Fawn's Perfectly Plaid Rainbow Petite Pack using Lawn Fawn's Scalloped Rectangles die. I layered everything onto a card base from cardstock from the card kit. Then, I added glossy accents over the eyes and the hearts. Here is a close up of the penguin eyes. The shine is much brighter in person.

Here is a closeup of the glossy accents over the hearts. The shine is more evident in these photos!

I hope my Mom figures out there is a PENGUIN on the card and gets the inside joke ... we'll see. She was so serious when she said it, I can't believe she actually thought there could have been a penguin IN A TREE, IN HAWAII! Silly girl!

Thanks for stopping by. Have a magical day!
