Happy 40th Birthday Penguin!

Hello Friends,
How are you all doing this fabulous Thursday??? Forgive my lack of posting but, I've been is some lazy crafty days and maybe is has to do with the excitement of my "NEW" shows  that started this week!

My husband's birthday was yesterday and I made this cute card for him.  I must say that when it comes to boy cards, I REALLY have a hard time putting colors together!   I thought I would do grays and whites with a touch of Marina Mist from Stampin' Up!

The adorable Penguin is from Stampin' Up! and the 
stamp is called Zoo Review item #122199 get it HERE.  I added some Crystal Effects to the bottom by the penguins feet to make it look like water or give it that wet look. The card looks better in person and can definitely see the crystal effects, I promise:)

The flag poll was made with some Designer Paper by 
simply rolling it and adhering it with some Tombow.  
The tiny Pom Pom is from my local craft store.
