Happy Sunday!!!!  I am here with another card for the Create A Smile Guest DT Entry.   I used this AWESOME AMAZING MOST FAVORITE FREEBIE I have ever seen!!! (ok ok, penguins have a place in my heart, so I am a little bias!). You can get the free digi here.  

There is a lot of texture going on here. I used some new Pearlecent Embossing Paste and a Studio Calico Stencil.  I then sprayed some Heidi Swapp Spray on some plastic, mooshed it around a bit...then smashed it down on my background.  Then dropped some silver tinsel Heidi Swapp over that.  I colored the penguin with copics and blended orange with yellows for the first time ever. Then I added a sentiment from the Avery Elle - Surfs Up stamp set, they go great with the little penguin! 

For the last touch of texture I added some yellow twine.  I unraveled the ends and I love the look it adds. It remind me of some beach hair!!!
