Penguin shaped card

This cute little penguin is from Simply Charmed.  I've never cut him before today, but he's so cute, I'm sure he'll use them again. Using the shadow layer (sized to 4 1/4" wide) I created a shaped card.

I welded the shape at the top so the penguin can stand up... oh-so-cute! I added some pop dots under the two sides of the bow tie.  Some quick doodling with a white gel pen is always fun for me.

I used flat back self-adhesive pearls for the eyes! :)

The sentiment stamp is from Studio G.  My favorite craft store, Craft Warehouse, was having a sidewalk sale this last week and had TONS of Studio G Stamps on super sale.... when I say super sale I mean it!!! They were all priced at 10 for a $1.00!!
