Alligator shape card

I have this super fun shaped card to share today!! :) One of my adorable neighbor boys will be celebrating his seventh birthday at the end of the week so I had to make a good "boy card." With two boys of my own, you'd think I'd have no problem with this!

I used my Gypsy and Create a Critter to weld this altered shape card together.  I sized the shadow layer first to RDS of 3 1/2" x 6" to fit these random envelopes I have.  Then I had to size all the other layers to fit the shadow (because I used RDS it made it a little difficult).  The layers ended up being 5.95" x 3.35".

After I assembled the alligator, I added a little doodling -- less is more for boy's cards. 

I threw on some black flat back self-adhesive pearls for the eyes and nostrils. Here you can see how I made the card so he can stand up to wish the special boy "happy birthday." (Hero Arts, Big Hugs clear stamp set)

This is super cute!! I thought about making a card similar to it but didn't. Even if I had, I doubt I could have come up with it being as cute as this!! Where did you get the flat back pearls? New Follower btw :o)
