Party Penguin (1 more for TCP TUES)

.....the more and more and more it snows, where it stops nobody knows.......
Hey there, what a weekend! I have been working on all the last minute things for my play and I am pleased to say I have been VERY productive. It has been snowing all weekend, and that means I have been home all weekend. So, productivity abounds & that means I got to make another card for this week's TCPTUES 144. I am just CRAZY about this sketch, it's sooooo good! :) I had these fun balloon stickers & thought I could use them in conjunction with this stamp. I had to cut them down a little, but I think they still look pretty cool. I stamped my penguin down and stamped 2 more balloons, so he was holding 3 instead of one. Then I colored the balloons and the penguin and I cut down my balloon stickers to layer on top of the colored balloons. The stickers only came in these 3 colors so that, and the colors I used on the penguin gave me the jumping off place for my color scheme. The colors are: Real Red, Daffodil Delight, Brilliant Blue, and Old Olive. I used some different border stickers for the strong vertical lines along the right side of the card. When it came to the sentiment, I highlighted the "29th" by stamping it in red, cutting it out, and layering it on top of the sentiment. 
Well, that's it for me, I hope you like my card! Please comment or follow if you can, I'd love to hear from you! :)
