Posey Penguin

Julee did it again. She posted another fabulous Mojo Monday challenge this week. This layout is so cool and could really work for a lot of images. My friend Cindy suggested this color combo to me weeks ago. I wrote it down on a piece of paper and it got lost on my desk. Imagine that! So while I was moving things around today, notice I didn't say cleaning up :), I found my little reminder and decided to give it a shot. Cindy you were right! I love these colors together. I'm definitely saving it so I can use it again!! I found this adorable little image in my Wish-RAK pile and I thought he would work perfectly for a Thinking of You card. It's hard to see in the photo, but he is outlined with a Tombow Pastel Blue marker to make him stand out against the white. The image is cut out with my Lg. Classic Rectangle and Lg. Classic Scallop Rectangle Nestabilities. The Whisper White and Bashful Blue background are embossed with the Textile Cuttlebug folder. The Regal Rose strip is stamped with the Linen backgroung. The sentiment is punched out with a 1 1/4" circle punch and raised with a dimensional. To spruce up the photo corners, I added a black brad. Julee thanks for the wonderful sketch and Cindy thanks for the awesome color combo!!
