A 2nd Birthday and some Christmas Penguins

It's been a day of two halves today ... sunshine and gardening in the morning and heavy showers and crafting in the afternoon!

This is a special request card - I'm hoping she's got the name right as I've never seen Anabel spelt like that!
My stamp is an oldie from CC Designs that I don't think has seen ink before! Coloured with watercolour pencils and swimsuit paper pieced.  Clear gloss and glitter added to the '2', her lolly and flowers on her sandals. Sentiment and number popped up on dimensionals.

My second card uses these fab penguins from Eat Cake Graphics ...
coloured with watercolour pencils and clear gloss added to their beaks and feet.  Penguin in foreground popped up on dimensionals.
Simon Says Stamp falling snow stencil, and christmas sentiment die.
Sentiment and corner accent cut from shiny silver card.

The inside of my card was inspired by my bloggy buddy Cheryl's gorgeous card here :)
I used an old cuttlebug embossing folder, but I managed to leave a mark so used a silver strip to cover it up.
