Whimsy Wednesday ~ Birthday Hello

Hey there my lovely crafty pals. I'm here today to share my Whimsy Wednesday post and this week, I'm sharing this adorable Birthday Penguin by Crissy Armstrong. I just love her penguins, they have the sweetest faces and are so fun to colour.

I created this card to look like a parcel top, with the ribbon cross and pretty bow and I was rifling through things I had sitting on my desk and found this lovely gold glitter card that I'd cut into a circle and not ended up using for a previous creation, which with that black and white paper and the pop of pink, I thought brought such a nice element of opulence. At least that's the word hubby used when describing this card and I think it fits nicely. 

This adorable image from Crissy Armstrong's Digital Collection for Whimsy Stamps is just so sweet. I love that face! I just had to add rosy cheeks! So fun and easy to colour up with my Copic Markers. Such a sweet image for a birthday celebration. I messed up the balloon when I was fussy cutting (gutted!) so don't look too closely. I will add another balloon on top once I've had a chance to get to the printers again.

I just loved adding this chocolate box bow on this design. I've created a double bow using the technique I learnt some years back now from the lovely Jak Heath. I just love this easy double bow technique and I use it loads! If you click through on Jak's name, it will take you through to the tutorial I'm referencing.

We have such a gorgeous lineup of images in the May Digital Release, so be sure to stop into the store for a looksy. The digital images have such a great price point and no postage! Which living here in New Zealand, I appreciate SO much! I also find it great for storage, just remember to back up your files regularly! 

I'll be back again soon with another crafty adventure, but in the meantime, I wish you a wonderful remainder of your week and happy crafting! Hugs, Wends xoxo

What a gorgeous and most definitely opulent card!! The gold sparkle is perfect with the black and pink. The bow is fantastic and, of course, the penguin is the star of the show xx
