P..P..Pick Up a Penguin!

I've used more new stamps on today's card...a couple of the penguins from a 'Special Delivery' set by Helz Cuppleditch called (strangely enough) 'Penguins'. I created a snowy scene for the background using plain white card...embossing the 'sky' using my Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes' folder, cutting a couple of trees using my Marianne Designs die, and simply tearing the card for the snowy slopes. I coloured the penguins using watercolour pencils, then cut them out and popped them on using 3D foam pads. The sentiment is from the 'Sentiments' set by Hero Arts.

Challenges for this card:
