A Mexican Penguin :)

I was born in 1990, and 2011 is the year most of my friends are turning 21. :) One of them actually gave me the stamp set I used for this card, called Salud, with a hint to use it on her birthday card that I have yet to make. :) I love this penguin, it's so cute! :) 

So, here's a card I made for one of my guy friends for his birthday. :) The pictures did not come out too great, because it was already evening and the lighting in my room is not that good..

Not visible in this picture, but the black on the penguin is embossed so it's all shiny. :)

This is the first time I have used Faerie Glass dewdrops! They are on the glass that the penguin is holding, making it look like a cold drink. :) I really liked using these, they're so cool! 

The friend I made this for really loves soccer, so I cut and folded a piece of white cardstock using this pattern to make a 3D soccer ball (okay, just half a soccer ball...) for the penguin to stand on. :) I then had to glue on little black pieces.

The inside is very simple... I didn't want to overdecorate a guy card (I have barely any experience in making those), so I kept it as simple as I could. :)
