Hi everyone!

What a beautiful day! Since it's been so warm and sunny I decided to play with MFT's "Penguins in Paradise." I love the images and created a little beach scene.

I really have been enjoying the classes at MFT, and I used some of the principles of card making they taught on this card.

I used a stencil for the background to create movement and make the focal point (penguin) stand out. Placing the sequins in a triangle also gives visual movement and flow. The drink, flip flops and beach ball are also placed in a triangle.

I'm entering this at:
