Winter Penguin Trio

I made this card for the Bugaboo Stella Says Sketch Challenge.  I'm also entering the ABC Christmas Challenge 'S for Sketch and T for Trio' (my card uses both letters - the Bugaboo sketch and a trio of penguins), Paper Creator 'Simply Christmas', Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge 'Use Three Different Patterned Papers' and Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra.  The paper and card are from my snippets mountain, so I'm also heading into the playground at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Bugaboo 'Winter Penguin Trio' digi. Hot of the Press 'Christmas Wishes' (magazine freebie)
Ink: Versafine 'Vintage Sepia'
Colouring: Promarkers
Card: White silk
Other: Diamond Stickles, Wink of Stella, Sakura Gelly Roll Clear Star pen
Snippets: Gold card and patterned papers

I attached blue snowflake paper to the left side of the card blank.  I resized the digi and printed it onto white silk card before trimming it and colouring the image with Promarkers.  This was then layered onto gold card before being attached to the card.  I stamped the sentiment below the image and highlighed it with the Sakura Gelly Roll pen.  I cut three fishtail banners and attached them along the top edge.  To finish I highlighted the penguins' clothing with a Wink of Stella and applied Diamond Stickles to the snow.
