I have a card to share with you today using the ADORABLE new Congrats, Grad Penguin!  This set was illustrated by Doug Applegate for the Apple Doodle Ink line at Taylored Expressions!  I love this cutie!!!

I started with the current Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge, TESC155, but I turned it on it's side to accommodate my image. I stamped him in Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White Cardstock and colored him with Copic Markers I then cut him out and layered him with Oval NestabilitiesAll of the patterned paper is On The Bright Side One from My Minds Eye.

I stamped the sentiment, "Congrats, Graduate" and then tucked it under one of the panels as a little tab.  I've used the new Reach For The Stars Taylored Die and cut it out three times.  I then layered them for a fun accent.  I really love how that came out!  I also used the previously released Seeing Stars Taylored Dies to create my trio of stars.

Here is a closeup of the Reach For The Stars Taylored Die in action (times three!).

And here is a closeup of the trio of stars I cut with the Seeing Stars Taylored Dies!
