Sue's Mystery Image Swap

Sue challenged us this month with her image- Boxer Penguin from Memory Box and she also sent us a cardfront of patterned paper to use on our card this month. I was definitely STUMPED with both the image and the patterned paper. I had come up with an idea and once I started with my card AND mounted my patterned paper down I decided it wasn't looking very good.

I improvised and tried a different approach with is okay. I'm not overly thrilled with the final outcome of it, but it will have to do. I colored the trunks of Boxer Penguin with my copic markers and layered him on my square nestabilities. I chose the coordinating colors of Not Quite Navy, Summer Sun, Garden Green and Real Red. I tried to jazz up my card a bit decorating the strip of Garden Green which I ran through the cuttlebug (tiny bubbles folder) with stickles. I also added some of the fire rhinestone brads to the flowers. I added a sentiment by Lockhart that I picked up on one of my trips to Maryland. Cracks me up every time I see it and will have to use it more.

I hope that my partner will like this card, it's not one of my best ones in my opinion, but it's not horrible either...is it???
