ColourQ + I(heart)2stamp Card

Way back when, I noticed this layout over at i(heart)2stamp:


I found it interesting and bookmarked it for a later date.  Also in my sketch pile, is a picture of a birthday penguin using the Stampin' Up Owl Punch (sorry I know I saw it on our Stampin' Connection site, but didn't write down the owner.) Then today I checked what the Colour Q challenge was and found this:

I knew right away I wanted to pull out the layout sketch and penguin to combine with these colors to make a fun birthday card.  Kiwi Kiss and Bermuda Bay are retired colors so I was pleasantly surprised to find Bermuda Bay card stock, but had to dig in my scrap stash for some Kiwi Kiss.

Without further delay, my card:

A time sucker of a card, mostly because I couldn't decide where to use what colors, but I can't wait to give it to give it away. 

Cardstock: Whisper White, Bermuda Bay, Kiwi Kiss, Concord Crush, Concord Crush DSP (Hostess Set), Subtles DSP, Bashful Blue, Basic Black, Pumpkin Pie
Ink: Basic Black
Stamps: Fabulous Phrases
Accessories: Big Shot, Lattice Embossing Folder, In Color Glimmer Brad, 3/4" Circle Punch, Owl Punch, White String (not SU)
