Ducky love

There's a story behind this cute card I made today for... my husband. Yes, I know, you thought it was for the birthday of a 5 years old but it's not....
When I showed him my new stamps the other day, we looked at the "Essential sentiments" from MFT, and I was commenting on how I might not see myself using some of them too often, like the "Hey Sexy!" one for example. I told him he was likely the only person who would ever get a card from me with that on... So that explains the sentiment...
Now, don't you love my cute little ducky? When I showed my hubby the cool set of little penguins (From C.C. Designs at All that scraps) I bought for my daughter (with the promise she would let me use them, LOL) he took a look and told me "It's cool you can even use it for ducks!" I admit I hadn't thought of that (yet!)... so that explains why there is a duck on a card for a 42 years old! LOL
I tried coloring the little guy but wasn't too happy with the result so I finally stamped him on yellow cardstock.
The heart is from "Boho Blossom" by MFT. I clear embossed the heart and the ducky and really love the glossy finish it gave them. It was a little complicated because I had already cut things out when I thought about the gloss so I had to hold Mr Ducky with tweezers by the little cowlick on his head! :-)
I wanted to sponge the borders of my green square but I forgot to do so before gluing the paper so it staid bare.... :-S The heart and the duck are on dimensionals.
As always you can see the details by clicking on the pic. (the little guy is even cuter in big size!! ;-) )
Stamps: "Essential sentiments" and "Boho Blossom" from My favorite Things, "Little penguins" by C.C. Designs.
Ink: Brilliance Graphite Black, Brilliance Pearlescent Poppy, Versamark.

This is so cute! Another great creation and using your set in a new way! I never would have thought about making a little duck out of a penguin.

I love it as a ducky. So super cute. It looks like the "duck" from the PAAS kitw you get at Easter.
