Unscripted Penguin Muppet...

How's that for a weird title eh? I've combined two challenges - the Unscripted 3rd anniversary sketch (the one from week 3) and the Friday Mashup challenge: to make a kid's card using the colours of your favourite Muppet character... I chose Elmo!

Hee hee - so cute... and I love his voice! I used his colours of red, orange, white and black to come up with this:

I'm not usually so good with kids' cards but I love how this turned out! I used one of the penguins and the present stack from Polar Party and coloured him with markers and a blender pen then cut him out. I popped the image up on a white circle cut with the Circles #2 die then layered onto a Riding Hood Red decorative circle from the Perfect Pennants die. The banner was created using dsp and the Petite Pennants punch then tied together with Baker's Twine. I added some Basic Black 1/8" taffeta ribbon and a sentiment from Happiest Birthday Wishes (a hostess set).

Here's the recipe:
Stamps: Polar Party, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Ink: Stazon
Paper: Riding Hood Red and Pumpkin Pie dsp, Riding Hood Red, Pumpkin Pie, Basic Black, Whisper White
Accessories: Polka Dots embossing folder, Circles #2 die, Perfect Pennants die, Petite Pennants punch, Basic Black 1/8" taffeta ribbon, white Baker's Twine

Thanks for stopping by!
