Happy Anniversary

Hi everyone.  Today's card uses one of Lisa Lara's latest digital stamps sets, Pal Penguins.  Aren't they adorable??!!  And I'm using the fabulous sketch by Mary (stampercamper at SCS) from the CAS 200 Party challenges.

I printed the penguins onto my cardstock, colored them with Stampin' Write markers and cut them out.  I printed the sentiment separately and cut in the shape of a banner.  I used my piercing template to add the heart shape on the card front, added the banner and popped up the penguins on top.  Crystal Effects was added to the penguin's noses and Clear Stickles to the bow and bow-tie.  Hope you like.

Stamps:  Pal Penguins (Lisa's Doodley Doos - Clear Dollar Stamps)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs)
Ink:  Stampin' Write markers:  Basic Black, Basic Gray, Real Red, More Mustard (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Paper Piercing tool, template and mat; clear stickles, crystal effects, adhesives, and dimensionals

Here's a close-up of the penguins:

Tip:  When you have an image that will have a lot of black coloring, add gray as an outline for more definition (example -  you'll see a gray line separating the body from the wings).

This card is for the following challenges:
