penguin shuffle

Time for another lawnscaping challenge!  This one's color-themed: create a card using a red-turquoise-kraft combination.

This card was so much fun to make - and will have that tune running through your head all day!  And look, he really shuffles:

...and to the right:

If you want to know how to make your own dancing penguin, here's the tutorial I followed - I couldn't help but CASE JJ's hilarious card.  The only change I made to the actual construction of the shuffling penguin is that in place of buttons, I used pennies - they're thinner, and the weight of the pennies really makes him waddle around!

I taught a class over the weekend, and we all made this card - the students were challenging each other's penguins to dance-offs... it was all fun and games until someone's penguin landed on his head...

We'd love it if you played along with our color challenge:
