I used Stampin Up's mellow moss as the base color. The flowered patterned paper is from a DCWV stack pack. I mounted this cutie on a pink cardstock (source unknown) and added the flower and brad. The Aloha sentiment stamp I had for some time in my stash, I believe it is one I picked up at a dollar bin in Michaels some time ago.
I hope you like this great Penguin! I didn't forget about my sampls using my new Crafty Secrets set, stay tuned....
Edited to add: I forgot to mention that I added (in case it's not clear) Stickles to her skirt and her flower!!

I embossed the background SU paper using my swirls embossing folder for the Cuttlebug. The background paper is from a DCWV stack pack. I colored this cutie in using markers and adhered it to a darker pink background. On a recent trip to Michael's I picked up some great bling bling in the dollar section and that is what I put on the four corners. I think this came out very simple but cute. Part of the challenge was to use the sketch but to also incorporate stitches! Oh, my cute little craft sewing machine is still sitting there because I can't figure it out! (I've never been one to sew and I've never used a sewing machine:-) ) Soo... I went with faux stitches, or tried... I know this gal needs a sentiment added but I decided to leave it simple.
And the winner is (drawn at random) is.......
Congrats!!! Please send me your mailing information.
I'll be back later with a card posting.

I used Stampin Up's Rose Romance paper for my base and the Cuttlebug to created the embossed background.. I colored the cupcakes with markers and used my Gel Pens to add some shimmer to them. I used the scallop punch by Stampin Up to punch them out and my 1/8 inch punch to add the "lacy" border. The patterned paper is from a glitter DCWV stack pack. The mustard colored circles are from an unknown source, I had the paper in scrap. What is your favorite card stock to use? I have to admit I do love the Stampin Up weight and colors! I have to order some more, I actually don't have alot of it. I was up late last night going through the new catty deciding what I need. Card stock is on my list for sure.
I can't believe I have surpassed 2,500 hits!! Thanks to everyone who visits and leaves me comments. I think this is a great time for some blog candy!!! Leave me a comment, I'd love to know what brand card stock you love and use and what your favorite color (or color group) is. I will randomly pick a winner next Sunday.

OHHHH, and guess what? I won a giveaway! WOOO HOO! That was pretty neat! I won the new pirate and pirate saying singles. Of course I still have not decided which sets I want to get. I definitely need the cupcake single! Did anyone order new sets at the party last night? I should have just stayed awake a little longer to decide!
Well, of to work on some new creations. I am a bit behind from this weekend but need to catch up. Lauren had a great Saturday sketch this week so I want to give that a try.

Gotta love these cool stamps. New release next week can't wait! I finally added a watermark to my picture. I've had issues with that, but I found a way I can with a software on my laptop. We'll see how it goes. But I do have to thank Lisa S because she sent me a cool watermark but at the time couldn't figure out how to make it work. Maybe I can try again with this software we'll see.
