   I have used another image from Jayne Netley Mayhew for this birthday card. This one is called penguins and my son loves these creatures. I have coloured it using Promarkers, cut it out using a Spellbinders majestic labels 25 die and done faux stitching around the edge. This was then attached to black core'dinations cardstock which had black ribbon wrapped round it before matting it onto white card. Four card candis were then glued to the corners of the image, a large black bow glued to the black vertical ribbon and a white happy birthday peel off attached to the lower half of the ribbon.

Yes,they are so cute when they waddle to the water,and the way the parents share the card of the chick. Sometimes I think humans could learn from them! Your card is well laid out and the image beautifully touched with colour. Thanks for sharing this with us at Crafting with Dragonflies for our first challenge for 2014.
