Sparkfun posts schematics of most of their products. You might be able to use the schematic and device something that is 1 sided and thruhol

As far as I know, you might not require a shield at all. If you are ok with some messy wiring, a normal Arduino board will provide with the necessary pins. You might have to watch your current draw, but for that you can always run the 5V line directly instead of from the USB that powers Arduino.

dont really have the time to look at that board.... but it sud be pretty easy to figure it out. just look at which pins are exposed and stuff..and chekc them out in the datasheet
