Stitching update and Celebrations!

Well the weather has turned a bit today hasn't it?? I hope it stays dry tomorrow because I want to plant my potatoes and onion sets at the allotment (after digging up the Leeks that have overwintered). The radishes are starting to show themselves and the two rows of broad beans that I direct planted are also coming up now :)

Anyway here is the card I made for my Granddad in law. I used the free Celebration Penguin digi-stamp from 2cuteink as the main image and coloured him in used Promarkers (Cool grey 1,4 and 5, Island Lagoon, Tequila Sunrise, Polar Blue and Tawney Owl). I then used an ornate die to cut the image out and attached it to the card front. Papermania adhesive pearls and gems were added to each side (as dictated in the catch the bug sketch) and a 'Celebrate' sticker added to the bottom.

This is being entered into the following challenges:
