Chilly the Penquin

Hello, everybody.  Today's card features "Chilly the Penguin" from SK Digis by Sonia Kertznus.  He was a freebie for playing along in last month's progressive challenge (thank you, Sonia).  There were two penguin images sent to me, and I chose this one to colour with my Prismacolor pencils.  Isn't he cute! 

You probably notice the great snowflake backing paper - I got this as an exclusive member freebie from Crafter's Companion Club Inspire.  They have great freebies and lots of inspiration - you should go check it out!   I added a torn strip of white cardstock to look like snow, doodled stitching all around the edge with my Tombow watercolour marker, and stamped the Studio G sentiment in blue (StazOn Azure). 

The die-cut Frostyville Corner is from Memory Box (one of my birthday gifts last month - thank you, Brian) - I used silver mirror paper - it's a bit hard to photograph and sort of looks black, but it's shiny silver.  I added a strip of blue polka-dot ribbon and bow and some Stickles to the snow.
