YNS Fun Friday - Have a cool birthday!

Hi all!  It's been one of those week's that make me truly say TGIF!!!!  We have a new sketch and color challenge for you over on the YNS Blog, so let's get to it!  I went with the color challenge for my card and used the newly release Waddles - Happy Brrr-thday set and matching dies!  I also used the stitched loop border die as 'party streamers'.  I colored this sweet little penguin with Copics.  So, Amy Rohl posted a card and linked the background technique she used HERE.  I've watched Laura Bassen's videos before and love her - if you haven't watched one yet, I suggest that you do, she's pretty entertaining.  :)  After watching her video, I decided to give her technique a try and this is the result!  Seriously, first try and I'm hooked!  It's SO easy, no way to make a mistake!  I used colors of distress markers to match the ice cream so that it looks like the ice cream dripped.  The watercolor paper was cut out using the newly release stitched rectangles dies.  I will point out that I used watercolor paper that I got from Hobby Lobby.   A few holly berry red gumdrops add a little extra fun to the card (and they go along with the color challenge!).

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Check out the YNS Blog for more inspiration and play along for your chance to WIN!
