C5 sandwich between 2 layers of R29 for the darkest shadow area.

I applied hand quilled roses to complete my card.  

Aww Moment For The Day

I spent some time at the aquarium in Chicago and I snapped some cute pics of the penguins they had. It was hard to pry me away from them..... I think I may have been a little fixated!

I am linking this card with the following challenges:
