Penguin Dreams

Hello.  Welcome.  Here's a bit of a whimsical project because there have been a few things to laugh about today and this is just something else, which I hope brings a little smile.  

I started with a previously made background which used Fresco Finish paints Pansy amd Limelight and a flower stencil.  I cut Crafty Individuals Starry Frame from card I brayered with orange acrylic and gold wallpaper and paper pieced them.  The Penguins are a Crafty Individuals stamp stamped with VersaMagic chalk inks.  I cut and paper pieced Memory Box Pepita border and also added a piece of the negative starry frame cut at the top.  My penguins are on a button beach and the sentiment is a favourite of mine from Crafty Individuals.
