Penguins in Paradise

I was inspired by Nichol Spohr and her fab scene cards. I hadn't used these penguins and my friend is a huge, huge penguin fan, now normally I make her a penguin card for Christmas but I thought why not use this set and make her a birthday card.

Once I decided what I was going to do it came together easily, I used the surf and turf slider dies for the waves which was the only die I wasn't sure I had. I did use the matching dies but I had to cut one of the trees by hand as I wanted it to curve.

The finished card does have a sentiment on it above the trees but I had forgotten to stamp one before I took the photo.
