3CT - Penguin Paradise

Welcome to 3CT (Three Clover Design) Thursday challenge.  While it's not my week to participate as a Design Team member I really liked the theme this week (Eat It - Must contain a food image on your card) so I just had to participate.  It took me quite awhile to get my card going because I only got 3 hours sleep last night and had to take a nap and then it was time for dinner, and after that Bible Study so I didn't get started on this card until 10:00 pm. 
 At first I wasn't sure what I could use that had a food image on it and I went through most of my stamps and discovered that I indeed had several that actually had food images on them.  While they weren't the focus of the stamp they were food items.  However I settled on this adorable Penguin Image by Imaginesce and the Popsicle that is also in the set.  I recently purchased this paper (Serendipity - Whale of a Tale) and thought that the patterned matched the Penguins shorts pretty darn good so I went with it as my color scheme.
Details: Card Base, Ballet Blue, Apricot Appeal which I stamped the popsicle images on in a repeated pattern with AA ink.  The sentiment is from a StudioG stamp set and was stamped in Basic Black Ink.
I colored the Penguin and Popsicle with Copic Markers and Prismacolor Pencils and added some Crystal Glitter (Art Institute) to the popsicles.  I raised up the shorts with foam mounting tape and added 3 light peach brads (Queen and Co.) These were layered on Almost Amethyst and Lovely Lilace cs Nestabilities Circles.  Then I tied some lavender ribbon (May Arts) around the Apricot layer to complete the card. 
My hand is really bothering me again (Carpal Tunnel) so I've got to go ice it up again.  Hope you enjoy my card.  I love Cream Sicles YUM YUM!!!
