Summer Penguin Birthday Card

This masculine birthday card for an upcoming July birthday features the retired Summer Penguin digi from Drawn by Krista. She has some very cute (and humorous) images. This Christmas Pickle card features another of her digis and is a past holiday favorite.

Paper is Joy! Crafts Summer Lovin' and Echo Park Happy Starfish (both retired...of course). I used Montez font for the sentiment. A starfish embellishment is the perfect touche finale.
