Let it Snow!

I sure wish we would get snow.  I don't want it to be treacherous or anything, just a thorough dusting would be nice!  My love of snow led to this card.  Heidi Grace has gorgeous shimmer paper with flocked snowflakes and it makes the perfect backdrop for this darling little penguin from Doodle Pantry (find him here).  He's colored with copics.  I used a Bazzill white A2 card and  Bazzill blue cardstock (from the earthtones stack) cut with Nestabilities curved rectangles.  I used Aleene's glitter snow for the penguin to sit in (have I mentioned I *love* that stuff?).  The ribbon is by Offray  and the bow is accented with a clear snowflake sticker (embellished with a MS rhinestone).  That gorgeous shimmer in my penguin's fur is actually the Cryogen white iridescent cardstock he is printed on!  It comes from Paper Temptress (here).  The small sticker sentiment -- O Winter, King of Intimate Delights -- comes from Susan Branch.    Soooo, let it snow (safely)!
