Happy Anniversary! and Clean & Simple 100th Sketch

Here's the anniversary card we plan to give to our parents today. The inspiration for this card came from the Clean & Simple FTL 100 Sketch. I started off trying to put the "Happy Anniversary" sentiment at the bottom like the sketch, but it just didn't feel balanced. So, here is a slight variation of the sketch.  Don't you love the penguins?  The penguins were made using the Two-step Owl punch.  You clip off the ears to create the penguin's body and to change the feet color, I found it easier to clip off the black feet and then punch part of the feet with small part of the body with Pumpkin Pie card stock. For the nose, I used the heart shape from the punch.

This idea came from a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator,  Megan Anderson.  If you haven't seen the owl, here is an earlier card I made with the owl (click here).

Here another card using the sketch. This might be my daughter's birthday card since she loved the penguins in the anniversary card.
