Smiles For You

My best friend has been in the hospital recovering from surgery for just over a week. She loves penguins so in between visits I have been working on her card. 

I knew I wanted to use penguins but I wasn't sure about a layout. On Friday, Your Next Stamp started a new sketch and colour challenge and the sketch fit perfectly with the idea I had in mind for my Get Well Card. 

I love to have some bling or glitter on my cards. It is very hard to see in the picture but the hearts on the penguins stomachs and the tips on the umbrellas have Clear Wink of Stella on them so they are very glittery.
