Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are well.

Phew, it's been scorching here for the last week. Like these little 'Penguins in Paradise' (MFT) I normally love being out in the sunshine but it's been too hot for me this time.
Thankfully the heat wave has passed and it's lovely and cool here today. 

This is the card I gave to my neighbour for her birthday yesterday.

I folded and cut down an A3 sheet of Pink Frog card to make my card base (with fold on the left) and then stamped the images straight onto it (using second generation black memento).

I used alcohol pens (mostly Promarkers/Flexmarkers) to colour everything in 
Orange: Tequila Sunrise, Burnt Orange, Fired Brick
Green: Apple, 8260 & 8270 Graph'Its
Sand: Buttercup, Pastel Yellow, Mustard
Sea: Copic BG70
Tree trunk: 3210, 3255, 3290 Graph'Its
Penguins: N1, N3, N5, N7

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:-

Thanks for stopping by, stay safe
