Dashing Penguins

These penguins are just having too much fun playing in the snow together! I love how fun this image is.

Deedee’s Digis is sponsoring Penny’s Paper-Crafty Challenge this week and the challenge is Use Black Cardstock. Now I have no problem using black cardstock but I guess when you TELL me to use it my creativity goes out the window. I kept coming up with ideals for stamps but none of them would use black cardstock. So I looked through the Christmas stamps and picked out a few I thought would work. Then started looking at sketches and sketch #4 in the November Card Sketch Challenge @ Scrapbook.com made me think of snowbanks and the flower could be a snowflake…..and that is how this card was made!
