CAS-ual Fridays CFC36 - Penguin Suit

Hello there!  Gong Xi Fa Cai!  It's the second day of the Chinese Lunar New Year and here in Singapore, most stores are still closed for the holiday.  Tomorrow, offices and stores will once again be open.  My kids will resume their classes on Thursday.

Today's card is for CAS-ual Fridays CFC#36 - Penguin Suit

It's my first time to join, although i've been visiting the site for sometime now.  Am glad i was able to snatch some time to make a card for this challenge.

Have stamped the background and i was delighted it turned out pretty :)  However, it took me several attempts to place the sentiments, trying this and that, and finally settled on the above. I wanted to add some small pearls, but i ran out of white/black ones; also wanted some bling, but only black and white are permitted and am only left with Christmas-colored ones :)

Am glad i got the chance to take the plunge joining CAS-ual Fridays challenge.  It was for me a bit intimidating, seeing all the beautiful creations in the site week after week, but there's a first time for everything :) 

Oh, by the way, i learned only from their post that there's a Penguin Awareness Day (20 January).  My eldest son loves penguins and all things penguin, hence he was interested when i told him about the date :)

Supplies:  Cardstock - Bazzill, AC; stamps - Flourishes "Lace Edges", Papertrey Ink "Mega Mixed Messages;" ink - Versafine Onyx Black, PTI Fresh Snow.

Thanks for your visit!
