Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #98

Welcome to Die Cuttin' Divas Challenge #98.

This week's challenge is to use a penguin in your project.  

I chose the penguin from the Jolly Holidays cartridge--isn't it just so cute?  Since he (or she) was holding the umbrella, I just had to go with the phrase, "Under the weather?"  I don't have any sick cards in my stash, so this was a good way to add some, especially since I decided to make two cards.  

A2 size card
Black cardstock mat
Red striped patterned paper
Penguin from Jolly Holidays at 3-3/4", faux stitching on the umbrella
Yellow stickles on the nose and umbrella handle
Fiskars Cloud punch embossed with Cuttlebug Musical Flourish
Computer generated sentiment punched with Fiskars rectangle punch
Inside sentiment is a wooden stamp.

Our sponsor for this week's and next week's challenge is Robin's Nest, and they are generously providing a $50 gift certificate!!

You have one week to plan, create, and submit your project.  Remember to include which die cut you used and a link back to Die Cuttin' Divas.  You may enter up to 3 projects per challenge.  The prizes are for 2 weeks of challenges with the winner being announced every other week from two combined challenges.

Here's the second card I made.  This penguin was my first cut, which I thought was a bit small, but figured, why not make a second card.  I'm also trying to use up some of the MANY scraps I have.  

We look forward to seeing your projects this week!  Thanks so much for stopping by.
