Birthday Penguins...

Our birthdays are feathers in the broad wing of time. -John Paul Richter

A little late for my Blogger's Challenge post this week...and my Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. I made a goal of making 5 cards a week this year and so far I have made 3 in the last 8 days, so I think I need to step on it! :)

I chse the colors, the birthday scene and the present to pull from this week's Cupcakes. This week's Blogger's Challenge is a sketch...







I switched out the sentiment for a few Gems and put the sentiment on the image panel. The sewing on the small strip was supposed to be zig zig, but I think my tension is set wrong b/c the zig zag part is on the other side!?!?!? Anyone know which direction I need to adjust the tension? The sewing qualifies this for this week's JUGS Challenge and the birthday theme fits the Crazy 4 Challenges challenge. I also think this works for the Three Clover's Challenge as my *Resolution* is to make and send more birthday cards and the challenge this week is to represent our resolution.

Supplies:
Stamps: The Cat's Pajamas Smells Like Cake
Paper: DCWV Textured Card, Regal Rose CS, My Mind's Eye Be Merry
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, Copic Markers
Misc: Bling, Stardust Stickles, Sewing Machine

Thanks for stopping by! Come back tomorrow for the new Cupcake Inspiration Challenge! And don't forget we are having a Design Team Call!!!

  16. Adorable card- I love your image and love the colors. I sew a bit, and would first rethread- make sure the thread weight is the same on the top and bottom and do not sew through adhesive. i am going to guess you need to lower the tension a tad- but....I take a sample piece of paper and make a sample first..... You can do this and mark down length and width and have a chart to follow any time you want to zig zag on any card.......
