C4C283 World Penguin Day

Good morning friends

It's Saturday, and that means a new challenge at the Crazy4Challenges Blog.  Lynn Put is our hostess for April, and this is her challenge:

Since today is world penguin day and tomorrow is National Go Birding Day, let's create a card or project with some type of bird as the main focus. 

I had wanted to make a second card sample for Els to take to the Trade Show in Japan, so I used Karen Burniston's 'Chilly The Penguin' with her Tags Pivot for my challenge card this week.

They were looking for cards that were easy and cute because of the language barrier so I pulled out some 6x6" patterned paper and got to work.

Ha! - loving a pink polka dotted Chilly, but I know a penguin-loving friend who is rolling her eyes right now.

Check out the blog to see how the Crazies have been inspired by the challenge.  We'd sure love to see your take on it, so be sure to stop by the Crazy 4 Challenges blog and link up your creations. If you are uploading to an online gallery, please use the keyword C4C283.
