CMCC #41 - Colour me... Striking!

Good afternoon! 

My entry to the CMCC #41- challenge.
This card got Honourable Mention in the challenge.

I had a phone call a few days ago and heard that one of friends got engaged! Wohoo! Of course, I immediately started to sketch in mind a card for her. I had this image on my mind with these two cute penguins from Purple Onion Designs sitting alone in the Antarctic in a moonlight - a little bit like us against to the hard world around us! The penguins are called Frost from Stacey Yacula Winter Wishes! Collection. I found this Color Me Card Challenge #41 and this card's colour theme is based on this week's challenge which is Cherry Coppler and Hello Honey. The challenge graphic is seen below. I coloured Frost and her husband-to-be with Derwent Inktense Pencils. I sponged the background with Pumice Stone Distress Ink. For the moon and the moon bridge I used Memento Cantaloupe ink. The sentiment was stamped by Versafine Onyx Black and the sentiment is from Tecnique Tuesday's stamp set called One of a kind. I die cut that little heart and inked it with Fired Brick distress ink and applied Glossy Accents to give some shine and dimension. For the detail, I also added a little bit Wink of Stella glitter pen for the scarf.

Thank you for stopping by today! I really like this card, hopefully it made you smile also! Happy crafting everyone!
