A new Sunday Challenge!

Every Sunday Rachel over at Hope Stamps Eternal posts a picture of a cupcake (or two) as a challenge. We are to use the photo as inspiration and make a card or other item from that inspiration. This weeks photo kinda just cracks me up. Isn't it cute!!! I sat and thought and thought about how I could pull this off...no penguin stamps, in fact no penguin anything. But I did remember I had a bikini (or bookini as my 4-year-old says) girl from My Favorite Things.

I colored her "bookini" black in honor of the penguins, used pastel colors in my card and added buttons instead of tiny flowers. I also used my favorite Martha Stewart punch. Oh how I LOVE Martha Stewart punches...AND if you love Martha Punches like I love Martha punches, Rachel is taking pre-orders on the new releases....she even has the drippy goo punch that was all the rage last fall!!
Hope you play along on the challenge!!

I think you did a great job with the inspiration. Your card has a wonderful tropical feel to it. Wish I had a "bikini" bod like that!
