A penguin for Simon

This card is for my daugther's boyfriend who likes penguins. I didn't have a stamp suitable so decided to make a penguin out of card instead...

I used the top half of the largest oval on a coluzzle to get the shape of his head from black textured cardstock then cut down from the oval to get his body. I did the same with a piece of white for his tummy using a smaller oval half of the coluzzle.
The eyes were punched out using 3 different sized circle punches, the beak and flippers were hand cut.
The greeting is hand written.

I'm entering this card into the following:
MMCS - anything goes

PTW - last christmas card of the year
