Under the Weather Get Well Penguin Card

Created a Get Well Card and CASEd a Penguin Shaped Christmas/Winter Card I created which you can see by clicking here.

Card I CASEd:

Used Jolly Holidays Cricut cartridge to make the Penguin & Umbrella. Used hologram paper for background which I like the way it photographs. Stamped a Die-Namics sentiment & raindrops. Cut the sentiment out with scissors. Added wiggle eyes. Added gems to sentiment banner and to umbrella for bling/sparkle. Added washi tape under the Penguin.
