Penguin Celebration

Good morning all.
It's looking like another bright crisp day, much better than the grey and mizzly ones we had over the weekend, even if it isn't as warm.
The guy at the Met Office said be prepared for colder conditions, hey it is still February!
Anyway as it's Tuesday it means a new challenge over at Cardz4Guyz.
This week our theme is -


No, not the sitcom, we'd like to see lots of those feathered friends in the gallery this week.
My bird isn't what you might think of as feathery but it's definitely a bird!

I've kept the background pretty plain, using a denim striped DP from NitWits, to re-create the sketch at Sketch Saturday, I mirrored it for this interpretation, and a cheeky penguin digi from Bugaboo.
I printed him out then coloured the image with Copics before fussy cutting and mounting him on a pierced rectangle die cut from the same textured linen card as the base card. I indulged in a pack of it from the wholesaler I go to for my ordinary card last week. The Happy Birthday die cut is from Crafts Too.

Like I said, v simple, so now it's over to you. For more inspiration check out the rest of the DT and then why not join in?

I'd like to join in over at:-
