Gerda Steiner June Challenge - Picnic Penguin

Hello, crafty friends! I'm stopping by today to share a recent creation of mine which was inspired by June image from Gerda Steiner's Monthly Progressive Challenge. When I first saw this little penguin with a picnic basket, I couldn't decide what kind of card I should create to make it to stand out from all other cards which are going to be submitted for this months challenge. I'd been thinking of creating a scene with this cutie having fun somewhere outside among lots of beautiful flowers or having a picnic with one of his buddies, but wasn't truly satisfied with those ideas. I'd been wondering what scene to come up with until I saw "Alien Invasion" stamp set in my drawer. And then it struck me what kind of card I needed to create for this challenge. So here is what I came up with:

I hope you've enjoyed today's card! Have a nice day and thanks for stopping by!
