Penguins on the ice

I'm going to make some 70ish Christmas cards this year. So I'm not ready to give up winter and Christmas just yet...

For this card I used a Hero Arts stamp set to make the background.
The penguins are made with stamps that came free with a magazine last year and have been colored with Promarkers.
I die cut an oval of silver mirri card to make the ice.

Simple and light weight, the latter being a main focus for this year's Christmas cards...

This card is for:
Tuesday Throwdown - #324 Winter Critters
Christmas Cards All Year Round - Snowflakes
Passion For Promarkers Challenge - #376 Anything Goes
