A cross between Up! and Madagascar with a cupcake would probably be the best way to describe this card!
I decided I wanted to make one of these box cards that I had seen on SCS and that it would be penguin and birthday themed... well the penguin theme probably came first to be honest. So I looked at my cute as a button penguin by Gina K and thought wouldn't he be cute holding a birthday cake of some kind... I wanted to keep this all Gina K but didn't have the right sized cupcake in my Gina K stamps so I went with the Technique Tuesday ones. Instead of paper piecing I cut inserts to slip the cupcake behind his flippers and then backed the stamped image with another fussy cut penguin, which also helped with stability when I adhered him to the card.
The balloons are an old QuicKutz die and loads of cheerful colored cardstock. Some were scraps.

Very cute. I love the contrast between that huge bunch of colourful balloons and the black and white box - with the penguin as a sort of halfway house ;-).
I've just moved it into the Pop-Up Box card category rather than the older Box Card tutorial.
