It's Time for a TCP Tuesday Challenge!

Hello, Friends!  I am back today with a card for this month's TCP Tuesday Challenge.  Alma has really created a fun challenge and I hope that you will be able to play along with us!  This time around, Alma would like you to use white, and/or cream and/or kraft and/or black and one other color of your choice. Not too hard to accomplish, but then she throws in a twist...lol!  Along with that mix of colors, she wants you to limit yourself to one patterned paper and only two layers on your card! (The base is not counting as a layer.)  Here is the link to Alma's Blog so that you can link up your creation, and here is my card...hope that you like orange...lol!
I wanted to use some of my TCP stamps that haven't seen a lot of love lately, so I took out the By The Sea set and found this penguin friend and sentiment.  I used Copic Markers (BG000, BG01, YR15, YR16, YR18, and the Colorless Blender) to color up this little guy.  The sentiment is stamped in white Colorbox ink.  I added some faux stitching to the left of the patterned paper and a cluster of buttons from my stash to the top corner.  I always like to dress up my buttons, so I added some Black Licorice Divine Twine to each one.  That is about all for this card!   
Thanks so much for stopping by for a visit.  Have a beautiful day...Toodles!  :D
