Friday Sketchers - Penguin Love

Happy Friday everyone!
Today, as it's still cold and snowy, I thought I'd go with a winter card! This is a new Motivet stamp that I won on Claudia's blog candy. It is sooo cute and just too much fun to colour! I used my Prima pencils on this image and I have finally figured out that the quality of paper is everything when it comes to the finished result! I used this on some copic paper and the blending of the pencils was beautiful!
So I've used the sketch off Friday Sketchers today which is hosted by the lovely Claudia. It was a fun one for sure. I've kept this card quite simple and just let the papers and image take full focal point. I've used my sewing machine to add some subtle detail and then sparkly snowflakes are my simple embellishments. I added some stickles as snow at the bottom of the penguins. Some organza and grosgrain ribbon add some detail too.
Well, it's a quick post as I have to take my son to the Children's Hospital for a follow-up Urology appointment. Hopefully the snow will stop as I hate driving in the stuff! Thanks for taking the time to pop on over and visit me. I hope you all enjoy the rest of your Friday and have a good start to the weekend! Stay warm!

That copic paper is a dream! You will never go back to the regular stuff! You'll try...but you will come back!LOL
Love this wintery card! I love those penguins...and the colouring is awesome Danielle! Love the shading!
Love the stitching, I think it just finishes a card! Hope you had a safe drive. I don't like driving in that kind of weather either!
Have a fantastic weekend! Did you get a chance to see the Just Magnolia challenge? I think you will like this one...right up your alley!
