Coolest Friend

I've had a few days off work, and it's probably not a bad thing that it's done nothing but rain!  I've been busy having a bit of a tidy up and repainted my hall/stairs/landing too ... not sure why I thought it was a good idea last year to paint it yellow, but it's now 100% less annoying in 'Springtime Sage'!!

Anyway, this wee card was inspired by Tracey's card over at the Muse challenge.  I'd won this MFT set a few weeks ago and haven't had a chance to get it inky, so it was great to see Tracey using them.

I used my Lawn Fawn cloud border and sun dies.  Image coloured with watercolour pencils and the penguin popped up on dimensionals.  Wink of Stella added to the flowers.  Orange glitter to his beak, umbrella and straw, and clear gloss to the drink.  Silver sequins from stash.  Dots with copic markers for the 'sand' to ground my image.
I love how this card turned out :)
