Penquins love FOREVER

Doesn't it seem like I was just posting last week's Color Dare challenge?  Well, it is that time again!  And Riley has done it again, another great color combo challenge!

Color Dare #104:  Cajun Crazy Beezes 
Cajun Craze

Baja Breeze

Not Quite Navy

I decided it was time to make my husband another card and thought these colors would be great for a man's card.  I used the Penguins from Everyday Pop-up Cards.  They reminded me of a movie, I can't remember the name, but it's about penguins and their heart song and how they mate for life.  A kid's movie of course, I don't get to watch much else!  I hope my husband picks up on the connection.  I will probably put a little reminder in my letter on the inside!

Here's what I came up with:

Scalloped background was cut from Elegant Edges at 4 3/4".
Penguins image was cut at 2 3/4" from

Card Base: SU Not Quite Navy 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" (folded)
Card front: Cajun Craze 4" X 5 1/4"   
Other Cardstock / Paper:  Baja Breeze, Not Quite Navy DP,
Ink: SU Cajun Craze
Stamps:  PTI Faux Ribbon
Accessories:  Cuttlebug & Checkerboard and Mesh embossing folder, Cricut & Elegant Edges and Everyday Pop-up Cards
