Happy Friday!
Have y'all checked out the DRS Designs Thursday Challenge? Just create a card using Snowflakes and link it up to challenge post. Easy as pie! And with your link, you'll be in the drawing for some fabulous images!

For my card today, I'm continuing the snowflake theme. I just love these cute little penguins. Such happy little guys! For most of us so far, it's been a really mild winter so snowflakes aren't even in the forecast. Not yet...anyway. Wherever these guys are, there is snow! I tried to use frosty colors to enhance the snowflakes and to me, the colors always look wintry. I really only used two stamps for this: the let it snow penguins and the interlocking snow background. After stamping and coloring the penguins, I die cut them and added some purple strips adorned w/ punched snowflakes. The 5.50 x 4.25 white card front was stamped w/ the snowflake bg using two colors of ink. I also stamped the snowflakes using the purple ink onto the lt blue panels. More punched snowflakes were added on top of an embossed snowflake circle.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a Happy New Year!!
