Penguin POPPING by to say Hi Card

Created this whimsy Penguin card using a digi
image I selected as a win from Birdie Brown Store
and JoysLife Yummy Pun stamp:
POPPING by to say "Hi!"

Used a Spellbinders die to cut the lattice layer.

Printed digi image on white cardstock & on the
lattice layer also. Cut the image out of white
cardstock. Attached cut out of white cardstock digi
image over over the image printed there with red
double sided adhesive tape. This way the eyelashes,
hair & ice cream splashes are seen on the lattice layer.
Colored the digi image with Sakura Glaze & Souffle pens.

Attached ribbon.

Placed lattice layer on the card base with foam to pop the

Stamped the sentiment with JoysLife Yummy Pun stamp.
Attached sentiment to a layer using foam to pop i
t as well.
