The color challenge at The Outlawz this past week was to use Lime Crush, Sugar Pink, and Gorgeous Grape. The twist was to make it a birthday card. Since I celebrate cupcake days, this will go into my stash for that.

The CAS challenge today at The Outlawz was a seascape challenge. Whenever I think of a card having to do with the sea, I go to my Art Impressions beach penguins. These two are enjoying their dreams of sitting on the beach during this cold, cold winter.
