Stitches and Buttons Card

For Taylor's sketch challenge this week, I combined it with a challenge from SCS to "stretch yourself", meaning use some technique that you've never or seldom used.:
Buttons are rare on my cards.
I've never stitched on a card - the buttons were attached with actual needle and thread.
Imaginisce penguin was stamped, cut out and attached to background. His shorts were paper-pieced with one of the same papers from the card.
The sunglasses are also a button with the shank cut off the back.
The PC-printed sign is mounted on a toothpick.

this is one of the cutest cards I've seen in a long time. Love all the embellishments on it!
