Some Odd Girl - Hol-Odd-Day Blog Hop

Hi guys! I may not be posting as frequently as I'd like to over the coming weeks, I've had my internet slowed down, so I might not be able to bear dealing with it most days, I will try and get online to upload when I can.... Onto my card -
Ok, so I started out using my brayer, and Stampin' Up Inks and brayering the sky, after stamping and embossing the white snow flakes. I masked off the ground and added a touch of sponging to where I wanted my little penguins to sit... I stamped, and masked my penguins (from Some Odd Girl) and coloured them up using my Spectrum Noir Markers. I then paper pieced the bow tie on the second little penguin using patterned paper from My Minds Eye (just a scrappy piece that's been on my desk forever!) I added some Crystal Effects to the top of the South Pole I then stamped the sentiment, and added a bunch of pennant shapes, in glitter, blue and the same red spotty paper as his bow tie... I added stickles to the snow flakes, and the ground, to give the impression of new snow. I embossed the white background paper and built my card...  here is a close up on my penguins... 
I am entering this into the 3rd Annual Hol-Odd-day blog hop, and the Some Odd Girl December challenge, I've just realised, my card is quite similar to the owner of Some Odd Girl, Kristy's card - 
I'm also entering this into the Simon Says Stamp anything goes challenge - 
This card was dropped in the mail yesterday, for a good friend :)
