Another Christmas Card

When I saw the cute Chilly Penguin digi at Squiggle Stamps I had to have him, he's soooo cute! I am really enjoying making Christmas cards in the summer, wish I'd done this last year as it takes the pressure off in the run up to the festive season. I've used a sheet of my all time fave Basic Grey christmas paper, kept it back from last year but had a talk with myself and have used it to make this card, even took my scissors to the edges - arrrggghhh!!!

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Supplies:
Image - Chilly Penguin from Squiggle Stamps coloured with Promarkers
Papers - Eskimo Kisses by Basic Grey
Cardstock - Bazzill Basics (I've used 2 colours for matting)
Button - Basic Grey
Charm - Crafty Emma's Store (tied with embroidery thread)
Sentiment - Catslife Press from Crafty Emma's Store - I LOVE this sentiment!
Pearl spray - Crafty Emma's Store
Tools - Nellie Snellen die, Marianne snowflake die set (I've used 2 of the set of 3), Glimmer Mist has been liberally sprayed on the snowflakes
