Thank you and attempt at sketch

Evening all, First before I show off my newest LO I would like to say a huge thank you to Everyone's kind comments, they mean a lot and give me enthusiasm to continue with my hobby so keep them coming I love reading them :)

So here is my latest LO, My take on Shimelle's June 15th Scrapbook Sketch of the Week :)

The photo is of Willow - My middle Son's Adopted Penguin at Weymouth Sea Life Centre. I used some scraps of papers left from Echo Park's Everyone Loves Christmas.

I bought a Scalloped Border Punch at the weekend which I was desperate to use and decided I wanted to give the a layout a bit of 3D look so I mounted some of the borders on to foam pads. I inked all the edges with black ink to make them look less flat once stuck down.
As I wanted the title to stand out and Willow's tag was red I decided to use some plain white chipboard letters for the Penguin's name and coloured each letter red with a Promarker :) and then for the journalling I used Echo Park's Everyone Loves Christmas letter stickers.
I decided the sides of the Penguin photo looked rather plain so mixed some Green Acrylic Paint and Silver glitter glue together and painted around the edges :)
