Penguin Birthday Wishes

Though I tend to prefer crafting with my Cricut, there times where I just want to sit and color. It can be so therapeutic, and I know I'm not the only one who believes so! I just caught up on my friend's Disney trip report where she brought coloring books with her for the long car ride! I know Cricut cards seem more complex, but digital stamps can sometimes be easier when I want a colorful card.

This birthday penguin digi stamp is from Bugaboo Digi Stamps. You can find it here for $3, but I was able to snag it when it was offered as the freebie on Friday. I used my Copics and my Bic Mark-It Markers to color the image. It's not fancy in the slightest, but I love the bright colors. That's why I also used a colorful piece of patterned paper on the kraft cardstock so that the image is easily the focal point. The sentiment is from Pink by Design's set called "Birthday, Birthday."

I will be entering this card in the February Anything Goes Challenge at the Catch the Bug Challenge Blog.

    1. Thanks, Tammy! I do hope to enter more challenges more often. It forces me to try to be more creative and use what I have. I have saved so many Bugaboo freebies that I haven't used yet!
