I Spy... Happy Birthday!!

Week 2 and another fabulous sketch!! The basis of the challenge is to "spy" a card in any online gallery or blog-- the sketch is created from the card chosen. The sketch will be posted Friday at 12:01 am (for time zones and early birds) and you have until noon the following Wednesday to create a card or project based on the sketch. THE Kim Teasdale will be picking the top 2 creations to be displayed on the "Top 2 Thursday" post. Check it out HERE.

This week Beate... yes, that's THE Beate is the inspiration for our sketch. Maybe someday I can have one of those first names- you know where they use your first name and everyone knows who you are.... not gonna' happen with Vickie!! Guess, I've lived with it this long... can live with it a little longer, hehehe!!

My card....


Now... is that one adorable penguin or what!! Stamped the image on white and colored with copics (just a little coloring---made me nervous-the girls on this DT are coloring masters!!  Popped on top of a white circle nestie... after using these papers (which I adore... OA Sidewalk), I wanted that penguin to standout with the bg paper-- 'cause he/she (that's still not a settled subject) is adorable!! Die and stamp are from The Cats Pajamas. Stitched a little and added some buttons. The pennant die can be found here... and Alma has lots of penguins.

The sketch....



















I did stamp the whole image.... there's a balloon attached and paper pieced that balloon- but is was just a little too busy with those buttons-- so, I cut it off--- Alma it's adorable either way!! My interpretation for this week's TCP Tuesday challenge....
