Penguin Poppies

The challenge at {PIN}spirational is a photo with penguins (or penguinies as friend Mary Lee's granddaughter refers to aquatic flightless birds). I was given the task of selecting any digital image from Aurora Wings one of the generous sponsors for this challenge at {PIN}. A definite perk of being on the design team! I decided to go with the colors in the penguin photo for inspiration and went with her lovely hydrangeas. You just never know where inspiration will pop from!
