On to the year 2011! It was a choice between Winter Penguin and Year of Flowers Collection. I probably would have gone with YOF, because flowers, but I asked my daughter and she picked penguin.
I don’t normally do things with sentiments – I like them to be very readable and make sense. For some reason, this layout just came to me and I couldn’t let it go.
I debated about adding color to the penguin, but I didn’t want to draw too much attention to him as I wanted the “hello” to stand out.
Now, if you don’t want me to ruin the card for you, stop reading. Once I was done, I asked my daughter what she thought and she was like “oh, how cute, hello penguin!”. I was relieved because I was afraid it would come across as “hell penguin”. of course, once I told her that, that is all she can see *evil grin* One day I’ll add tiny red gems to the eyes and mail it to her!
Thanks for taking a peek!
